I'm trying to move an iso image from one machine 10.152.7.15 to the tmp folder on 10.152.7.16 . I run the following command

scp vmware.iso root@10.152.7.16:tmp

and get the error "no space left on device". I believe my syntax for copying is wrong.  Is it ?

scp vmware.iso root@10.152.7.16:/tmp/

Also check that there is sufficient free space in /tmp on the remote machine for the ISO.

ssh -l root 10.152.7.16 df -k /tmp
