I can insufficient disk space on datastore snapshot migrate all machines except the ones with this disk configuration :I have three VM with 4 x 2 Tb disk inserted.

When I try to move to other datastore next button is greyed out with the message : insufficient disk space on datastore "xxxxx"How can I change the datastore and

what is the pocedure ? P.S.I have enought space on new datastore.Thanks for your help,Alan 4617Views Tags: none (add) This content has been marked as final. Show 4 replies 1. Re: Change datastore - insufficient disk space on datastore a.p. Aug 29, 2013 12:59 PM (in response to Ma5ek) I'm not sure whether I understood the issue correctly. However, what I could think of is that the target datastore may not have been created with the required block size (8MB for virtual disks of up to ~2TB).André Like Show 0 Likes (0) Actions 2. Re: Change datastore - insufficient disk space on datastore Ma5ek Aug 29, 2013 1:37 PM (in response to a.p.) Hi,I have created new datastore with required block size ( 2048Mb, 8Mb ).On ESXi i have 8 stores conected via ISCSI ( 8 difrent LUNs). One store is for virtual machines, other stores are for virtual disks ( 2 tb on each store ) and they are imported in virtual machine ( four virtual disks ( each is 2Tb ). Inside the virtual machine I have Server 2008 R2 64 Bit, disk is converted to dynamic and all disk are striped - total 8 Tb of disk space.Do I have to remove virtual disk from VM settings, migrate to new datastore and then add virtual disks back ? If yes, can I loose data ?Regards, Alan Like Show 0 Likes (0) Actions 3. Re: Change datastore - insufficient disk space on datastore krishna_v

I then power on the virtual machine, and it gives me the Insufficient disk space on datastore error. And so I removed the newly created disk and try to power on and it gives me the same error! I don't want to panic but I need some good advice on how to fix this and why this is happening...

Are any of the datastores full or very close to it? The swap file may be located on a full datastore even if the VM is on another datastore and if the host cannot create the swap file, the VM will not boot. EDIT: Right-click the VM and go to Edit Settings > Options tab > Swapfile location. Select one of the other options ("Always store with the virtual machine" is recommended and will probably work for you since that datastore has a lot of free space). As far as cleaning up that datastore, you can right-click it and Browse and poke around to see what kind of files are taking up the space. It may be likely that your host is configured to use a different datastore for all VMs by default and it is just taken up by swap files at this point. To change the default swapfile location for the host select the host, click the Configuration tab and Virtual Machine Swapfile Location. share|improve this a

Created a new snapshot and tried to delete all snapshots afterwards also failed. Deleted one VM and some ISO to create space, still fails. insufficient disk I'm running Vmware 5.5. Is it possible to delete the snapshots manually in the datastore explorer? Adding storage is not an option and moving an vm to another host also not an option.

Move some other VMs to another datastore and then try "delete all" them via the snapshot manager. 5 Mace OP Gary D Williams Jul 15, 2015 at 8:45 UTC You'll need to free up more disk space on the datastore either by moving a VM or deleting more ISO's or old VM's. Have a look at -> RVTools - Home and see if you've got any orphaned VM's as they'll eat up quite a bit of space. 4 Pure Capsaicin OP Rod-IT Jul 15, 2015 at 9:02 UTC You can also stop adding to the used space by turning the VM off while you consolidate, this way your not still taking hits adding to the snapshot size and you give the system time to merge it all back. But as above you still need to create more space How big is the snapshot and how much free space do you have? 2 Ghost Chili OP Sid Phiilips Jul 15, 2015 at 9:03 UTC If you can't free up enough space, you won't have much of a choice other than add some storage.  Do you have a NAS laying around that you could mount a datastore via iSCSI? 3 Sonora OP Stephane8219 Jul 15, 2015 at 10:01 UTC Thanks for all yo

to power on, after a very long wait it failed with an Insufficient disk space on datastore ". error. It seemed like it was unable to create the swapfile and I could see in the Datastore that it tried to create the vswp file and it was growing bigger and bigger until it filled up the Datastore completely. After rechecking my Virtual Machine config it was a clear what happened: I wanted to create a Virtual Machine with exactly 3,5 GB of memory so I entered 3584 but forgot to change the GB to MB! I would expect VMWare to tell me that it’s not possible to allocate 3584 GB of memory but if you watch quickly you can see that VMWare changes the entered amount to the maximum possible (which depends on the configured blocksize) before closing the Window: In my case this is 255 GB: So a clear case of human error but it would have been nice if VMWare would give us a notice.
