    the issue seems to be with your thin provisoned volume.  The volume is currently increased and maybe nearing the allocated threshold.  check all the thin provioned volume if they have grown sudenly which seems to have taken the free space from your free pool.

    Yes..check in your Group manager if any of your thin volumes grown suddenly.      However if the issue is with your free pool space....then I would suggest check on that fact if you are using some snapshots or replciation delegation taken that space as well.    the errors reportedly are saying that the volumes are exceeding the pool capacity as they are thin provisioned and might have grown since the original allocation was done as with thin provisioned the volumes are always over allocated than available pool space
