Hi!

The first error says that you run out of space on datastore where your VDP appliance resides. Because ESXi host can't create swap file for a VM.

The second error says that VDP configuration has attached VMDK disk of VM SQL01_2018116_122715_349 which is probably locke by that VM. You need to right click on VDP appliance, choose edit settings and then __remove from inventory__ this disk, do not delete the disk from datastore.

Or you can edivt VDP VM's vmx file and delete the line with path to that disk.
