I've deployed VI-19.0.0_GA.VMW-317.zip last Sunday and migrated SFOS 19.0.0 GA-Build317 from old SFV4C6 to this new one (because of swap problems). Veeam ONE Monitor starts to send Guest disk space "/var" alarms today. It looks like SFOS v. 19 image has much less space for /var than v. 18.5. (along to https://community.sophos.com/sophos-xg-firewall/sfos-v19-early-access-program/f/discussions/133616/v19-hyperv-disk-usage-reporting-full).

It could be resolved on v19 MR-1 but I can't see it in Resolved issues. Anyway I get "No records found" if I check for new firmware.
I've tried to find how to purge report logs but firewall help is not very instructive. What is the recommended procedure?
We have now posted the v19.0 MR1 installers at https://support.sophos.com/support/s/article/KB-000043162?language=en_US.
Like Luca said, this issue affects VMs which were deployed with the v19.0…
This could be: NC-94291
Fixed in MR1.
I think and believe that this problem (NC-94291) is fixed in build 350. But it is possible to correct this problem on a "live system"? When we updated another firewall, the /var filesystem REMAIN small. I have found some info about "increasing /var size" in https://support.sophos.com/support/s/article/KB-000036775?language=en_US. It is worth trying this after update? Or do we have reinstall XG firewall again and restore config from backup?
Are there any suggestions for this yet?We are also affected and have 5 productive instances!SFOS 19.0.1 MR-1 build350 is not available as install image and seems to be withdrawn today also as update???We need a way of repair without reinstalling!
It is fixed in MR1. The Build Version does not matter. You should have access to V19.0 MR1 in your Licensing Portal. community.sophos.com/.../sophos-firewall-v19-mr1-re_2d00_release-build-365-is-now-available
19.0.1 MR-1 is available as an update, but NOT as an installation media.But if you click on "check for updates" in a firewall today, it says "no update available". That was different yesterday!
On the other hand you answeresat not my question!The update does not fix the error with the var directory!So the question remains: How can the problem be fixed without reinstalling??
I opened a case regarding this issue (NC-94291)
This could be related to V19.0 MR1. See: https://community.sophos.com/sophos-xg-firewall/b/blog/posts/sophos-firewall-v19-mr1-re_2d00_release-build-365-is-now-available
There are two fixes:
NC-100679 & NC-94291
So you can update your current installation to V19.0 MR1 and try it. The Respin version fixed another issue, which could potentially caused this issue.
Hi Toni, thank you for quick response. I need to explain your "... try it...". You mean - after update the /var would be "expanded" after update will have finished? Or we need export-reinstall-import? Or you don´t know and mean "maybe the /var size changed after reinstall"?
As I wrote: The update does not fix the error with the var directory!
Of course I checked before I wrote that!

We are not increasing the the /var/ because there is no reason to do. But 41% is actually fine from my perspective. /var/ is rarely used.
This Firewall is brandnew (installed yesterday)
And we have another that is 3 weeks old, there it is on 100 %!
Sorry Luca, please don't think I'm stupid, but your answer is simply wrong.
There is an nc-94291 for this issue and you try to say 41% is fine........
Here is an example how it should be. (appliance has been updated from 18.x)
SFV1C4_SO01_SFOS 19.0.0 GA-Build317# df -hFilesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted onnone 231.4M 12.6M 202.6M 6% /none 1.9G 20.0K 1.9G 0% /devnone 1.9G 21.5M 1.9G 1% /tmpnone 1.9G 14.6M 1.9G 1% /dev/shm/dev/boot 127.7M 50.0M 75.0M 40% /boot/dev/mapper/mountconf 385.4M 73.1M 308.3M 19% /conf/dev/content 3.6G 601.6M 3.0G 16% /content/dev/var 29.9G 8.6G 21.3G 29% /var
IT IS reason.!!
We have "consistently" only 5%-10% free. Sophos report this nearly every day as errors. AND our monitoring system report this permanently. AND we keep losing reports older than several days. AND email system sometimes refuse sending bigger emails. AND we have aloocated 80GB disc for 4 GB /var. AND....

Ok lets rephrase this.
It is another problem, you are facing.
So the disk is not increasing due an issue. Instead the size of your partition is to small. This has nothing to do with any of the IDs i called. The IDs are tackling issues, which increases the amount of data stored and resolve this.
But if you partition is not utilizing the proper disk size, this is an different issue. You can follow up on this one with support.
"Instead the size of your partition is to small."
primary disk 16 GBsecondondary 80 GB (as recommended by Sophos)
I do not feel taken seriously here!
We have more than 170 firewalls online, so you can assume some experience.
Please verify your own Post on https://community.sophos.com/sophos-xg-firewall/sfos-v19-early-access-program/f/discussions/133616/v19-hyperv-disk-usage-reporting-full
Ok lets rephrase this.
NO and NO. Disk increasing IS NOT AN ISSUE. ISUE IS:
Size of /var on 80GB disk is only 3.8 GB after intalation.
After new/fresh install /var is simply TOOO small. And is not ANY documented method how to expand it(or repair it, or anything you have to rephrase it).
THUS we have "bad install = with small /var" and we don´t have ANY method to recover this BAD condition.
Thank you for your support!
This is exactly what I would like to point out!
Again: My point is another. The firewall releases will tackle issues, which let the existing space fill up due bugs.
You are facing an problem, which is a problem in the size of the partition of /var/ (Do not confuse this with the disk size you are using).
This is already addressed in the newest Installation medium. So if you use the V19.0 MR1 installation files for hyper-v/vmware, it will be fixed.
It only affect installations based on v19.0 GA or EAP2. V19.0 MR1 or <V19.0 GA (V18.5 etc.) are not affected.
It is currently not possible to fix this with on board tools / firmware updates. So you need to check for a reimage, as far as i know.
This is again a very bad cheap solution! But very expensive for us!And once again: WHERE CAN I FIND THE 19.1 INSTALLATION IMAGE?Of course I know where to find installatiosnsimages, but there is only VI-19.0.0_GA.KVM-317.zip available for download. As already written several times!!!
... and please escalate this so your developers can find a workable solution quickly.
You could use V18.5 MR4 and upgrade to V19.0 MR1 as well.
V19.0 MR1 is not released in this form, as it is in the soft release.
