Client update insufficient disk space on client

Citrix.PresentationServer.ClientUpdateInsufficientDiskSpaceOnClient.Rule (Rule)

Raises an alert if an automatic client update component detected insufficient disk space on client

Knowledge Base article:

Citrix ® Management Pack


The server detected that a client installation is out of date. However, there is insufficient disk space on the client machine for all the required files to be upgraded. The session will continue using the existing client installation.


During the initial negotiation, the client relays information about free disk space to the server. The server uses this information to determine if a client installation can be updated. This event indicates that the server has determined that the disk space required for the automatic client update exceeds the available disk space on the client. For the client update to succeed, some temporary space and space for backing up existing files is required, in addition to enough space for newly installed files.

  • Check that the client that caused the error is functioning correctly and that there is enough disk space on the client computer
  • Ask the user if they have experienced any storage-related errors
  • Ask the user to restart the client update by logging off and starting a new session
