What size is your /tmp partition? You can resize it if it isn’t large enough. Many servers have only 500MB for /tmp which isn’t large enough and should be around 2GB instead. You could edit /scripts/securetmp for this line:

my $tmpdsksize     = 512000;    # Must be larger than 250000

Change to this line for 2GB:

my $tmpdsksize     = 2097152;    # Must be larger than 250000

Save the file (:wq), then run these commands to resize /tmp partition:

umount -l /tmp
umount -l /var/tmp
rm -fv /usr/tmpDSK
