VMs snapshot and Replication error

I need idea.
I have a 3xESX server and 10 VMs server.I do Veeam backup and Replication.My replications starten with error.I realesed my datastore has not place any more.unfortunatily i have not posibility datastore extend.
I need idea how can i do now importand servers replication?

q1:if i erase not importand VMs (like terminal server 1,terminal server 2)replication and i do only important Vms replication like exchange ,domain controller,etc.

q2:if i do only backup for not very importand VMs server(like terminal server 1,terminal server 2) and when they corrupt i use restore from veeam backup .

my ideas are ok?

Terminal Server VM's are also important if your users do authenticate from VPN from external. Yes i do agree that Exchange and DC\GC's are very important.

Are you planning to take a backup of the VM's Add more Disk\Storage to ESX and then Import the Server VM's and work from there on.

soryy what you mean with VM's Add more Disk\Storage to ESX?
Manpreet SIngh KhatraSolutions Architect, Project LeadCommented:
VM's means Virtual machines that reside on the Host ESX ....... Are you speaking about just taking Snapshot backups for the Important servers like "Exchange and DC" .... but you will have to consider Terminal servers just in case they play some Important role in access from external.

Like many sites have Terminal servers that users use to access their servers or Company data ..... if so then Backup is Imp as if that fails how would external user have access ?

Yes, you can just use Restore.
if your terminal server 1 and 2 is not that important, of course you can backup them and delete from your replication server, then as soon as you can get a bigger storage for replication server, you can restore them back.
