It seems that I ran out of space on a virtual partition of my VM. The
VM is a Windows 2003 Standard Edition.
I've deleted some unnecessary stored files from the storage (~2GB) and
Virtual server started to run as normal once again.
But when I check the storage it says there is 2.5GB free space so that means
I'll experience the same issue soon again.
I have experienced the exactly the same issue twice before and when I have
deleted a snapshot from snapshot manager that has solved the problem before,
but now even there is no more snapshot left on the snapshot manager to delete.
If I browse the datastore I can see that (pic1)
So I am assuming that *****.local-000002.vmdk* & *****.local_1-000002.vmdk*
files are snapshot files.
Being honest I don’t need any snapshot on this server because I am already
using Symantec Backup Exec on this one.
I've read some posts in here and some solutions I've found which are not really suitable
with my situation;
1. Create a new snapshoot and then delete all from snapshot manager, that removes all the
I don't have no more enough free space for a new snapshoot
2. Move the VM to other host that auto. removes the snapshot files
I do not have any other host in my environment
So how do I delete those files(snapshots) without interrupt anything on the
server, or am I on the wrong way?
