From the looks of it the datastore where your VDP VM is running is going out of space.the OS disk is 300GB? I thought VDP Os drives were 200GB and expansion was unsupported.
What exact alert was triggered? Could you share that?
I got this Mail:
The datastore where the vSphere Data Protection appliance provisioned its disks is approaching maximum capacity. When the maximum capacity is reached, the appliance is suspended, and cannot be resumed till additional space is made available.
When I check the Vdp with df -h
admin@vdpprod:~/>: df -h

Status from the Web GUI:
Well that explains it. Its not the VDP itself running out of space. Its the VMFS datastore where your VDP appliance is hosted is running out of space. If the VDP is thick provisioned then we are good, since the space is already allocated on the machine. If it's thin / if the datastore is overprovisioned with other VMs being thin provisioned, then if the growth rate is > than the available space on datastore, then all the VMs on that datastore will be suspended
Thank you for your support.
So I will expand the Backup Data Storage.
