VM datastore running out of disk but not sure why.

This post was originally published on this site

I have a datastore that keeps running out of disk space but I am unsure why.

No VM disks are thin provisioned. There are two VM’s

1 has a 500GB disk

1 has a 100GB disk, and 2 500GB didsks.


The total is 1.6TB. The disk size is 3TB. Yet it consistently says it is out of space.


The sys_vol is on another disk and is 500GB in size and is 470GB free.


Any ideas what is going on? Is there some log file I should be looking for?


I am presently running disk consolidation on one of the VM’s but I am dubious it

will help.
