    Hello,

    Can anyone please let me know the exact steps to get rid of Virtfs mounts without having an impact on the server filesystem. In my server 160 GB of the total 250 GB is used up by Virtfs.

    I have disabled Shell access for all accounts.

    Thank you.

    Check if there’s any jailshell process running and if so, kill the process. If none, then run below command to fix the virtfs:

    Hello,

    I have followed the documentation and unmounted the partition in /proc/mounts. Unfortunately the space consumed by virtfs is not getting freed up. It still consumes space. I have also ran the following commands; but that didn't help:

    /scripts/clear_orphaned_virtfs_mounts
    /scripts/fixquota
