Storage Issues & Storage vMotion

Over the weekend apparently several of my VMs shut down because the datastore was critically low on space. However on Friday the datastore had about 100GB free on it. Now its down to around 25GB. My environment is back up and running, but Im not sure whats happening with the storage.

Also Im getting an error now when I try to do a Storage vMotion. I use Andrew's graphical plugin for the VIC, but when I do a Migrate Storage I recieve this error:

"A general system error occured: failed to copy VM config to VMotion dest (vim.fault.InvalidDeviceBacking)"

Any help on any or both issues would be helpful.

Thanks!

Maybe you had some snapshots left running? Also, does SVMotion work using the RCLI?

Kind Regards,

Some Vms had snapshots, and the link provided by COdlk was relevant as well. Thanks!
