    while attempting to update to ver 16.02f, i got a prompt about "could not log for sv" , "failed with no space left on device"

    How do I get myself out of this?
    Napp It is a VM on my esxi 6

    much thanks for your help!

    seems your systemdisk is full:
    try to delete unneeded boot environments

    list them at console as root
    beadm list

    destroy one of them (any beside the current, use oldest)
    beadm destroy name_of_be

    then
    you can either reinstall napp-it via the wget command
    or copy the content of /var/web-gui/data_last (last state) to
    /var/web-gui/data/ (active state)

    Thanks Gea. I managed to get back in after deleting all the snapshots on the VM, and magically it could boot normally again.
    Is this a known occurence ? having snapshots will take up space which prevents updates?

    A snapshot needs space (ESXi) or blocks space (ZFS) so at some point the disk is simply full.
