our environment is running out of storage space, the free space on the SAN is like 10GB out of 500GB. What should i be cautious about this situation? I already know I can not do snapshot. What other risk out there? Thanks
If there is no space you may not be able to power on a VM, SVMotion, VMotion, snapshot, etc... Pretty much anything that creates a file on the system.
As Oliver pointed out you want to check for snapshots and LARGE or multi logfiles associated with each VM.
