    How to handle "target datastore is full" errors?

    nwamh Lurker

      Hi all,

      we managed to run ghettoVCBg2 on vSphere 6.0 and vMA 6.0.

      Unfortunately our backup datastore reached it's maximum capacity resulting in failing backups (e.g. the large VMDK files are missing).

      There are no error or debug messages in ghettoVCBg2's log file.

      How can we handle this (besides monitoring the target backup datastore and providing sufficient storage space ;-)?


      vifs supports only "--dir <remotedir>" but that does not show the size of the files living in <remotedir>.

      What would be the best approach after backup to check if all files made it to the backup target datastore?


      Thanks for any hints!
