A replication job fails to run and fails with the following error message reported:
This message is most often caused by the destination datastore being low on space.
1. Manually remove older snapshot/restore points from the Replica. Always delete the oldest/topmost snapshot. Remove snapshots until there are (Retention +2) snapshots on the replica.
In the screenshot below is a snapshot/restore point chain. In this example the job was set to a retention policy of 7 which was too high for the small datastore. The decision was made to change it to 2 for testing. As such we began by removing the topmost snapshot (highlight).
2. Migrate unneeded VMs off the datastore.
