Could not power VM - no space left on device - Help please
Posted on 2014-03-28
I have this issue where 2 of my Vms have problem starting up. The error message are:
"Could not power on VM. No space left on device and insufficient disk space on datastore"
I have 2 hosts which are: VM1 and VM2
One of VM machine in VM1 and VM2 are refused to start because of space issue.
I have no idea why running out of space.
My questions are:
1. When i do backup with Veeam free edition to external HDD, Does it create snapshots in datastore?
2. How do i access Datastore (HP SAN P2000) data if i have no Vcenter so that i can see what data/folders inside the datastore and delete it?
3. Is it really the datastore that running of space or the actual Vmserver itself?
I did SSH connection to VMserver as per Vmware documentation, it seems ok.
I suspect i have delete some vmdk files, but i have no idea where it is.
