Re: Could not get available backup room in backup datastore

You can't backup to the very same datastore where your production VMs are.

Re: Could not get available backup room in backup datastore

do you mean by the drive where backup is store? what does backup point mean?
I am able to detect space on other server which used the same datastore. I only have one drive so do you mean I will need to get one more drive for the backup?

Yes. Backing up to the same disk is not backing up.
