Hi All.

I have a VMPro Server 9.1, and it is getting full.
So when I went to an Avaya SOLN 307224, and going through it, it says in case 4 to manually delete the files.


So I ssh'd into the VMPro,

navigated to

CODE -->

and deleted some 2018 files, manually using

CODE -->

rm 1XSCSServicesRollingFile-2018-09-*.log 

It comes back with

CODE -->

rm: remove regular file <and the name> 

I answer 'y' and do an ls, and the file appears gone. However I went back in this morning and I am seeing the files I deleted there again.

I've tried changing the owner, changing permissions, and as the song goes, the cat came back.

Any ideas? Do I have to do a reboot?
