Sounds like your VM has a number of snapshots, do you know why?
(Moving to the ESXi forum)
Thanks. I don't know why this snapshots are there... I don't have enough diskspace on the LUN to remove them...
Do you how I can remove the snapshots?
Thanks a lot,
There are things you could do, these are the most obvious:
1. Increase the size of the datastore
2. Migrate the VM to a datastore with sufficient space
3. Migrate other VMs to a different datastore to create the space needed
Snapshots should be used sparingly, what you're experiencing is one of the reasons why. I would investigate who created them by looking through logs/events.

To find out how much disk space is required, it's important to know which version of ESXi you use and whether the disks are thin or thick provisioned. Please post a screenshot of the datastore browser window which shows all the files with names, sizes and time stamps. Also let me know how much disk free space you currently have on the datastore and whether there are other VMs running on the dams datastore.
