I Currently have a Win server 2003 virtual machine setup for a Dev Sql environment. The Virtual machine is hosted by a ESXI server that uses a 500Gb Lun. All virtual machines are on these Luns (no local). My issue is that in one days time the Lun that the Dev Sql virtual machine was placed on lost over 10Gb in space for no reason. Im the ONLY person with access to the Lun associated with the Virtual machine and the ESXi environment, and I have not done any snapshots or file movement. I assume there is a massive log file placed on the ESXi server but where is the default location? and how can I prevent this from happening on another ESXi box?
**The Dev SQL Server is NOT full in its windows partition and has over 20Gb of space to use in Windows
**I have had (3) ESXi boxes running for several months now. The associated Luns often change within the 100mb range. They have never drastically changed like the issue above unless I do snapshots or otherwise.
ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED! Thanks
