You have checked the Spoke2_LUN1 datastore to see what space is used/free?

Only option that will work in this case is NOT TO ANSWER until you was able to free up some space.
And trying to free up space by deleting an existing snapshot is probably the worst thing you an do.

If necessary kill the VM by stopping the process and then reconfigure the VM and move one of the vmdks to another datastore.

Could not see your first reply ....
Kill the VM by stopping the process.
Then move one of the snapshotfiles
(YES - you have snapshots as you will find out if you look via WinSCP or Putty)
to the datastore 1 (5)
reconfigure the VM by editing the vmdk-descriptorfile.
Then you should be able to continue the VM ...
