How to remove files from Linux Kernel:

If you want to delete any files and the “filesys delete” command is not working, you can delete them only from the Linux kernel.

You can do it only with plugin which allows you to enter the Linux kernel.
It is specific for each version of NX-OS and be very careful what you’re deleting and doing from inside the linux:
nexus# load nuova.bin

The commands from inside the linux should be something like the below EXAMPLE:
 cd /var/sysmgr/logs/
rm FILENAME.tar.gz
