I am new to Google Cloud. I was downloaded a few text files into the VM instance. I then suddenly started getting messages like
bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device
I ran the df -h and found that my disk was being used 100%
/dev/sdb 9.8G 9.3G 0 100% /
I searched about it and figured that I might need to add more persistence storage.
I followed the instructions here -> https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/disks/add-persistent-disk
Now when I run the df -h I see that the new storage is added (usage is 1%)
/dev/sdc 20G 45M 20G 1% /mnt/disks/disk2
When I run lsblk, I get:
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 10G 0 disk └─sda1 8:1 0 10G 0 part / sdc 8:32 0 20G 0 disk /mnt/disks/disk2
However, I am still getting the same error with No space left on device. I have restarted the VM. Kindly help.
P.S. VM -> Debian 4.9.65-3+deb9u2 (2018-01-04) x86_64
