Veeam Backup Temporary Snapshot Cannot remove

Post by vespapair » Apr 08, 2017 6:11 am

Dear all
I have some problem about Veeam Backup Temporary Snapshot. I try to backup VM(Full Backup) but it's not successfully and show warning in below.
8/4/2560 7:16:08 :: Removing VM snapshot... (0% done) Details: The operation cannot be allowed at the current time because the virtual machine has a question pending:
'msg.hbacommon.outofspace:There is no more space for virtual disk /vmfs/volumes/VMXXXXXXX.vmdk. You might be able to continue this session by freeing disk space on the relevant volume, and clicking Retry. Click Cancel to terminate this session.'
I know the VM disk space is full, so, I was extend disk and try to remove Veeam Backup Temporary Snapshot but it was error in below.
Remove snapshot VMXXXXXXX The operation cannot be allowed at the current time because the virtual machine has a question pending: 'msg.hbacommon.outofspace: There is no more space for virtual disk /vmfs/volumes/xxx-xxxx-xxxxx-xxxx/VMXXXXXXX/VMXXXXXXX-000002.vmdk. You might be able to continue this session by freeing disk space on the relevant volume, and clicking Retry. Click Cancel to terminate this session.
I don't know what should remove this snapshot how to be my data and vm safe, Please suggest me the solution above. Thank you so much

What disk exactly did extend? An underlying vmfs volume, right?

If there is sufficient space on a datastore and snapshot in question cannot be removed, try to create a new snapshot via vSphere client and commit it afterwards.

Thank you Eremin. I try to removing snapshot without extend disk => My VM was consolidate. but next time (T..T It happens again). I extend disk before remove snapshot, It's work! (in 6.30 hours.....T..T)

However, I appreciate you very much for your answer. :D

Got it, datastore lacking free space is typically the root cause of the described behaviour, indeed. Glad to hear that you're able to fix the problem
