Hi RSA Forum,


I got a question regarding the backup from 10.6 to 11.3 with the -u switch. Its mentioned multiple time not to change the backup path to anything other than the default. Id like to know the reason for this as my backup is currently failing due to not enough space within that default directory.


See below


I need a couple more gigs within that for the backup to actually complete successfully.


Calculating size of backup for hostname
Disk space required for hostname backup is 13.80GB


all my other hosts have enough space and finish without issue. Rather than attempting to use shrink another partition in order to grow this one. It makes more sense to just hold the backup in another directory for this host then when upgrading this host reference the non-default directory i used for this host.


The consistent references within 10.6.6 to 11 upgrade documentation to only use the default directory make me think that this approach would not work.


Any advice on the best way to move forward would be appreciated
