No Comments

Few of my clients are still running older versions of SQL Server and they have their own reasons to not to move to the new SQL version. In this blog, I would share my findings of how I identified the cause of failure “Disk full: There is not enough disk space on the volume.”

Whenever I get a failure of any installation, I always follow official Microsoft documentation:

SQL SERVER - Patch Failure - Disk Full: There is Not Enough Disk Space On the Volume patch-disk-full-01

As we can see, ALL the failures are pointing us to another file sql_engine_core_inst_Cpu64_1.log and the error code is 1603. As mentioned in Microsoft documentation, I searched for “value 3” (without double quotes) and found the place of failure with an error message in sql_engine_core_inst_Cpu64_1.log.

SQL SERVER - Patch Failure - Disk Full: There is Not Enough Disk Space On the Volume patch-disk-full-02

Here is the error message in text format.

Disk full: There is not enough disk space on the volume ‘D:’ to continue the install with recovery enabled. 131,060 KB are required, but only 48 KB are available. Click Ignore to continue the install without saving recovery information, click Retry to check for available space again, or click Cancel to quit the installation.
Action ended 3:22:05: InstallValidate. Return value 3.
Action ended 3:22:05: INSTALL. Return value 3.

WORKAROUND/SOLUTION – Disk Full

I don’t know if I need to explain the corrective action for the error message we received. Yes, it is about low free space issue on D drive. The correction action would be to move some files around to other drives so that we have enough space on D drive and setup can be completed.
