Hi all, I need help! The VDP server cannot be strated, and got error message as below (1), then I go to STORAGE > Files to remove an un-useful vmdk and released 2TB space but got another error message as below(2):
My vSphere Version:
*vSphere Web Client, Version 220.127.116.1100 Build 5973321
*vSphere Data Protection, Version 6.1
An error was received from the ESX host while powering on VM BACKUPSRV.

Any solution to fix it?
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.
