Profiles: File-system requirements

A minimum amount of space must be available in the directory where you create a profile.

An error can occur when we do not provide enough space to create a profile. Verify that you have, in addition to the minimum space required for a particular profile, an additional 40 MB of space. The 40 MB of space is used for log files and temporary files.

and server types.
Profile or server type Space required
Application server 200 MB
dmgr 30 MB
Administrative agent 30 MB
Job manager 30 MB
Custom 10 MB
Cell 230 MB
Secure proxy 5 MB


Situations in which you could have insufficient file-system space

The Profile Management Tool and the manageprofiles command check that the amount of file-system space needed to create the profile is available prior to the profile creation begins. However, a slight chance exists that the profile creation can fail due to a lack of file-system space. This failure can occasionally occur in the following situations:

Use the following recommendations to avoid profile creation failure:

Differences between the manageprofiles command and the Profile Management tool when creating cell profiles

Both the manageprofiles command and the Profile Management tool can create a cell profile that has both a federated application server profile and a dmgr profile. However, the Profile Management tool and the manageprofiles command create cell profiles differently. The differences are important to understand in terms of the available file-system space needed to create the cell profiles. We can create a cell profile in one pass through the Profile Management tool. In this case, we need 230 MB of available file-system space to create the cell profile. However, to create a cell profile using themanageprofiles command that is equivalent to the cell profile that the Profile Management tool creates, create two individual profiles, the cell dmgr profile and the cell node profile. The cell dmgr profile requires 30 MB of available file-system space, while the cell node profile requires 200 MB of available file-system space.
