VCSA Shell is disabled.

One of our VC is down because of the space issue and not able to login to the Shell.

Followed the below steps to fix the same.

  • Accessed the VCSA on Grub mode
  • Found “/” and /storage/log partitions were full.
  • Released some space in both partitions and rebooted the VCSA
  • We were able to SSH into the VCSA , however found vmware-cm service was failing to start with below error:

Stderr = su: cannot not open session: Permission denied 

  • Checked root expiration date and found it was expired.
  • Reset root password.
  • Restarted services, but issue continue.
  • Tried rebooting the VCSA
  • All the services came up.
