0516-070 : LVM system call found an unaccountable internal error

root's picture

In the example below, the error 0516-070 : LVM system call found an unaccountable internal error. was due to full / (slash) filesystem.
Since it was the first time I have seen this error, I do not know if it could be associated with other problems but for sure you can find yours by looking into errpt.

aix / # lsvg rootvg

Description
UNABLE TO ALLOCATE SPACE IN FILE SYSTEM

Probable Causes
FILE SYSTEM FULL

        Recommended Actions
        INCREASE THE SIZE OF THE ASSOCIATED FILE SYSTEM
        REMOVE UNNECESSARY DATA FROM FILE SYSTEM
        USE FUSER UTILITY TO LOCATE UNLINKED FILES STILL REFERENCED

JFS2 MAJOR/MINOR DEVICE NUMBER
000A 0004 
FILE SYSTEM DEVICE AND MOUNT POINT
/dev/hd4, /

Remember, you will not be able to increase / if it's full because you will get the same error. You will have to do just a bit cleaning first in order to have a successful increasing command:

aix # chfs -a size=+128M /
Filesystem size changed to 786432

Now a successful "lsvg rootvg" command:

aix # lsvg rootvg
