If you try to initiate a Delete All snapshot for a virtual machine using Snapshot Manager, and if that virtual machine is on a datastore that does not have sufficient space for the snapshot, the following message displays in VMware Infrastructure (VI) Client:
msg.hbacommon.outofspace: there is no more space for the redo log of <VMname>-0000xx.vmdk.
You are given the option to abort or retry.
- If you choose Abort, the virtual machine is powered off, the snapshot is aborted, and a Consolidate Helper snapshot is created. The Snapshot Manager UI displays that Consolidate Helper snapshot. You can delete the Consolidate Helper snapshot after you have made space available.
- If you click Retry, the Snapshot Manager returns to Consolidate Helper snapshot mode unless you have made more disk space available.
