    vSphere Data Protection Boot Disk Full

    inshsr Novice

      Hey

       

      I get the error that boot disk is 95% full. I use Version 6.1.4.30

       

       

       

      But if I check it, I got:

      Why is the utilization report 95% high, but my disk sda9 reported 5% used?

       

      Thanks for support

          From the looks of it the datastore where your VDP VM is running is going out of space.the OS disk is 300GB? I thought VDP Os drives were 200GB and expansion was unsupported.

            Hey Suhas

             

            Thank you for answer.

            Yes, you are rigth, I have expand the disk from 200GB to 300GB, because the report gives me a warning that the capacity is 95%.

            What can I do to prevent an disk overflow?

                I got this Mail:

                 

                The datastore where the vSphere Data Protection appliance provisioned its disks is approaching maximum capacity. When the maximum capacity is reached, the appliance is suspended, and cannot be resumed till additional space is made available.

                 

                When I check the Vdp with df -h

                  Well that explains it. Its not the VDP itself running out of space. Its the VMFS datastore where your VDP appliance is hosted is running out of space. If the VDP is thick provisioned then we are good, since the space is already allocated on the machine. If it's thin / if the datastore is overprovisioned with other VMs being thin provisioned, then if the growth rate is > than the available space on datastore, then all the VMs on that datastore will be suspended

                    Hey Suhas

                     

                    Thank you for your support.

                    So I will expand the Backup Data Storage.
