Yes, the mentioned ".old" directories can be deleted.

Regarding the "/var/lib/ambari-server/resources/views/work" directory , Even if we delete this directory when we will restart the ambari server again then this directory will be created automatically, Because ambari server extracts the views (jars) into this directory so this directory will be again filled with the extracted views apps.

However it will be good to see if you can increase the "/var" directory space.
