[frs-277] “java.io.IOException: Cannot run program “ln”: error=12, Not enough space” error when installing FusionReactor from a NAS or other file-system with “root squashing” enabled


Symptom

Installation may fail if attempting to install from an NFS share with root squash enabled.

Analysis

This is because by default, the installer extracts temporary files into the parent directory of the installer location. As this would not typically be accessible, the installation is likely to fail with a message such as "java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "ln": error=12, Not enough space".

Resolution

To resolve this, first copy the installer to a local, writeable file-system (eg /var/tmp)
