ESX Ranger No such file or directory

I am using ESX Ranger v3.2  and I am backing up vm's from multiple esx servers.  Seems to work great.  I am having a problem backing up one particular vm.  Its just a standard windows 2003 server vm.  Here is the error that I am receiving.

10/18/2007 9:44:40 AM: Performing Backup.
10/18/2007 9:44:42 AM: An error occurred during backup operations:
/tmp/8dc0b140ba204e4daccdc252b5b0cf7e: No such file or directory
10/18/2007 9:44:42 AM: Removing Backup Snapshot.

Does anyone know what is going on here?
Thanks
Nick

In Virtual Infrastructure Client, select this problem VM and hit the Summary tab. Note the datastore that the VM is using. Now select the actual ESX host that the VM is running in and goto the Configuration tab then Storage. Under the Storage pannel select the datastore that the VM was using , right click and browse the datastore. Is your VM listed along with the other VM's sharing this datastore?

Yes it is listed there.  This is the only vm on this datastore.  The other vm's are on another datastore.  The other datastore was out when i installed this vm.  Both of these data stores are local data stores. (we are in the process of setting up a SAN to hold all of our vm's)

If you have multi VM's in the other Datastore and they backup fine, that kinda tells me that something is not right about this Datastores config.

Ill try and free some space up on the other datastore and move it over tonight.  If I can back it up after the move, I wonder what could be the problem with that datastore....

Well I moved it to another data store and it backed up just fine.  Can I delete and re-add the other datastore with no problem?  This is the main data store on the os drives.

Are you 100% sure the path you entered into the backup process was correct?

Yes...  You can delete and re-add with no troubles.

Well I never had to put in a path in esx ranger.  I just added the esx box to it and it found all the vm's on the box.  Well im getting a backup of the vm now so that was my main focus.  Thanks for your help!
