and a media server to avoid unwanted client upgrades. For clustered environments, you can push client software only from the active node. During a client upgrade, the new client files are written to a directory in /tmp on the client. This directory must have sufficient space to temporarily store the new client files to ensure a successful upgrade. If sufficient space is not available, a status message informs you that the upgrade script could not write to the location in the /tmp directory. To resolve this issue, allocate more space to the /tmp directory and perform the upgrade procedure again. The temporary directory is removed when the upgrade is complete.
