I found a error today on my debian OpenAFS Fileserver with creating new
I do run debian wheezy/jessie mix with OpenAFS 1.6.13.
I get this error while mkdir /afs/cgv.tugraz.at/tmp/test :

mkdir: das Verzeichnis =E2=80=9Emhjh=E2=80=9C kann nicht angelegt werden:=
 Auf dem Ger=C3=A4t
ist kein Speicherplatz mehr verf=C3=BCgbar

(no space left on device)
On fileserver I get in FileLog:
 2015 CopyOnWrite failed: Partition /vicepm that contains volume
536870987 may be out of free inodes(errno =3D 17)

/dev/sds1 on /vicepm type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,data=3Dordered,_net=

An FSCK tells me on that partition;

fsck -vf /dev/sds1:

Do we have a issue here? Do I misread the information fsck gave me?
Am I out of iNodes? I guess not, but why do I get the error 17 ?

Is OpenAFS the issue here?
