Issue:

The server has limited space available in the /tmp directory, we set $INSTBASE to /var/tmp
directory with more space.

INSTBASE=/var/tmp;export INSTBASE

and used the sudo command to run the Silent Agent installation as we cannot install the agent logged on natively as root.:

sudo IATEMPDIR=/var/tmp;export IATEMPDIR && /var/tmp/setup.bin -f unix_installer_PRD_Linux.txt

The installation  fails with the following errors:

en_needMoreSpace=WARNING! The amount of $INSTBASE disk space required to perform this installation is greater than what is available.
Please free up at least $free_up kilobytes in $INSTBASE and attempt this installation again.
 

 

Environment:
WA Agent  R11.3 SP7 on LINUX Server
Cause:
The server has limited space available in the /tmp directory
Resolution:

Set the following variables in a temp shell script and execute temp shell script before running the AE installer as sudo.

sudo
IATEMPDIR=/var/tmp;export IATEMPDIR;
TEMPDIR=/var/tmp; export TEMPDIR;
TMPDIR=/var/tmp; export TMPDIR;
AS_SKIP_SPACE_CHECK=1; export AS_SKIP_SPACE_CHECK && /var/tmp/setup.bin -f unix_installer_PRD_Linux.txt

The AS_SKIP_SPACE_CHECK will cause the product not to use the disk space checks.
