Controller installation Disk Space issue

We are trying to install AppD controller and noticed below error


Task failed: Check if the required data directories have sufficient space on host: ..: The destination directory has insufficient disk space. You need a minimum of 409600 MB for installation.


I selected Profile as Small which says 400 GB Disk Storage. However, our host partition has only 355 GB. Is it possible to bypass the space check ? We do understand the risk of using less than suggested storage.


  • Supported Platforms: Linux(64 bit) or Windows(64 bit)
  • Supported on VMs: Yes
  • CPU: 4 Cores, 1.5GHz minimum
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Disk Storage: 400GB

Hi @Anand.Vyloorpisharam,


I found this information for you. 


You can modify property  controller_data_min_disk_space_in_mb in file controller-medium.groovy to lower value at /platform-admin/archives/controller/4.5/playbooks/controller and trigger controller installation again.
