insufficient disk space in datastore vmware server
Posted on 2011-02-12
I am using vmware server 2.0 to run a windows 2k8 r2 server. It ran out of space (100gigs) so i increase the drive capacity additional 100 gigs. For some reason that additional 100 gig didn't get allocated to the VM. I am unable to extend the drive in the disk manager. however a 100 gig vmdk tmp file was created in the vm datastore folder taking up that space. Even with that i still have another 100 gigs free on the harddrive. So i try allocating another 20 gigs and i'm getting reconfigured virtual machine failed error. insufficient disk space in datastore. Any ideas?
