Cloud requirement: disk space

When you start setting up a link with Cloud, some prerequisite checks are performed to ensure your installation is ready to link. When you hit the Link with Cloud site button in your local web console, a popup is presented with a pass/fail indication for a number of prerequisite checks. One of the checks is whether your local Lansweeper database server has enough free disk space available.

Why is disk space checked?

When you first set up a link with Cloud, a backup is performed of your local Lansweeper database. This backup is what is initially synced with your Cloud site. After this initial sync, the database backup is removed and any further changes to your database are continuously synced up to Cloud as well.

In order for Lansweeper to create a backup of your database, enough free disk space must be available on the server hosting your database. The disk space check specifically verifies whether free disk space is at least 1.5 times the current size of your Lansweeper database, with a minimum of 300MB.

What do I do if the disk space check fails?

On the machine hosting your local Lansweeper database, free up disk space. Free disk space must be at least 1.5 times the current size of your Lansweeper database, with a minimum of 300MB. You can check the current size of your Lansweeper database in the Configuration\Database Tables section of your local Lansweeper web console.
