    Model: ex3400-48p
    Junos: 15.1X53-D57.3


    Had problems making change to the config, so i dig a bit an notice the filesystem was full and i had 175K+ files in /var/log on each of the five members of a virtual chassis. 


    Turns out a log file named "jvcsp10_20180322_150930_auto_image_upgrade_commit_log" is created every minute on each member (timestamp changes of course) and I had to delete them manually with a 'find' command because a request storage cleanup just didn't do it.  The log files dated back from about 6 months ago.


    The virtual chassis works again correctly but these files keeps pilling in /var/log.  Any idea what's wrong ?   here is the content of one of these log files :


    root@jvcsp10> op url /var/db/scripts/op/commit-config.slax config_file /config/auto_image_upgrade.conf action override
    warning: Error while setting loading configuration
    error: syntax error

    Looks like the ZTP setting might be accidently still on for the switch. Can you look for auto-image-upgrade and delete if it is still there.


    show configuration chassis


    if this shows



    enter configuration mode and


    delete chassis auto-image-upgrade

    Also, check if any configuration under event-options.

    Thanks, i don't know how it got there in the first place, but I had this in the config 


    event-options {
        generate-event {
            events auto_image_upgrade_commit_config;

    deleting it solve the problem.
