    Restoring a vm

    URGENT HELP NEEDED!!!

    Our VM that holds all the user areas seems to have gone down. it keeps coming up with an error message saying data store out of disk space.

    Lastweek i had a problem that the diskspace was getting low so i added another disk drive from a separate LUN in the VM properties and then converted it to a dynamic disk so the disk space would be expanded. this did the trick and started to show the new disk size

    I have tried restoring from a snapshot but I still get the same error message.

    I have tried restoring the the vm from backup exec but that keeps hanging on pre-processing.

    Any one feel that they can help please feel free to call me on 01772 867218 or reply on this forum.

    Any help and advice will be appreciated

    How many snapshots do you have? How much space are they taking up?

    I'm betting your snapshots have eaten all your disk space.

    It says theres on one snapshot which was taken by the backup server. do you know if there is a way to increase the size of the lun on a md3000i?

    Dunno, I don't own an MD3000i and have never done it. Google alternately suggests it is (from CLI) and isn't possible. Do you have sufficient space to copy the contents of that LUN to a bigger one?

    Were I you, I'd be rtfm closely and raising a support call to Dell.

    i have reconciled the snapshot however the snapshot is a week old. which means a lot of work is not there. i do have differential backups of all days but they dont seem to want to restore everything keeps skipping alot of files.

    Seriously WTF are you doing using snapshots in a production enviroment?

    the only time i ever use it is before a SIMS upgrade, in case I end up with 300 people who can't login in to SIMS. I always always delete the snapshot by the end of the next day.
