Problem 

The replication or recovery job cannot start and returns the following error:

There is not enough space on the target datastore/storage

Background

During replication and recovery jobs, NAKIVO Backup & Replication checks the amount of free space on the target datastore or storage. If there is not enough free space, VM processing cannot be started and the above error appears in the product dashboard.

Solution

To solve the problem, make sure that the following requirements are met:

  • For the initial VM replication and VM recovery, the amount of free space on the target storage should be larger than the size of all initial replicas or the size of all recovered VMs of the job.
  • For incremental replication and recovery jobs, the target storage should have more than 10% of free space available.
  • No labels
