Vmware : Unable to start Virtual Server

I'm not able to start one of the VM server due to space issue on one of the partition.

Here is the error I got when I try to start the server  :

msg.hbacommon.outofspace:There is no more space for virtual disk LIVE_1-000001.vmdk. You might be able to continue this session by freeing disk space on the relevant volume, and clicking Retry. Click Cancel to terminate this session.


Thank you for your support

We escalate this issue to the VMware support and according them this issue or missing data is related to the storage. We are using the HP Storage.

All of the snapshopt are also corrupted, there is no chance to recoverry those data.

Check if you have some other VMs/leftovers in another folder in the same space. Delete/Move out these and try again.

Or ask your networking team if they can expand the lun (Is it on a lun)?

Hi,

Since it is due to disk space issue, just try to free up some space on the drive that store those VMDK file.

It's likely you have a snapshot, can you confirm and check, my EE Article will help

HOW TO: VMware Snapshots :- Be Patient

Increase datastore space, or you will have to resolve the snapshot issue.

I can work with you to resolve this issue.

You need to free space for the VM first. The error is about the size of vmdk and not the size what you see in the VM.

You could try to migrate this vm to a larger data store.

In your original post you stated the error message is referencing "LIVE_1-000001.vmdk". Anything xxx.0001.vmdk is a snapshot so this VM is running on a snapshot image,

You need to properly merge / delete the snapshot via command line:
