How to change the free disk space limit of Splunk Enterprise in Amazon EC2?

I have Splunk Enterprise deployed on an Amazon EC2 instance. When I enable Splunk Web, I get this error:
"The minimum free disk space (5000MB) reached for /opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/dispatch."

How do I change the minimum free disk space?

Hi peterkn,

it is in server.conf

[diskUsage]

minFreeSpace = <num>
* Specified in megabytes.
* The default setting is 5000 (approx 5GB)

see the docs http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.4/admin/Serverconf

cheers, MuS
