    Default Can't get Nessus running on Backtrack 5 R2

    Hi guys hope you can help me out. For the past few days I've been trying to get Nessus running on my BackTrack 5 r2 VM. I'm using virtual box and every time I go through the process of downloading and installing Nessus it will not start. The problem is it just keeps getting hung up on the "Initializing" screen. Then after awhile these errors come up. Does anyone know whats going on? I don't understand why I can't get Nessus up and running








    Thanks,

    Frank

    Like the error message says. Your low on disk space.

    Either make the partition bigger, upgrade your hard driver, install to a different location or remove some "stuff" to make room

    I've tried to make a bigger partition in virtualbox and still get the same error. Does the partition need to be static? Right now I have it as dynamically allocated storage.

    After making the hard drive bigger in VirtualBox, have you then made the partition itself bigger?
    You'll need to re-use the live CD and use Gparted (GUI method), to increase it.

    It shouldn't matter about the type of virtual hard drive storage.
