unable to create VM or unable to install Windows 2003 on newly created VM


Resolution:

The journal files in ESX/ESXi hosts are located at /var/log/vmware/journal/. This defaults to the same /var/ filesystem used for storing logs and coredumps. The historic files in the host may be consuming the disk space.

Note: To determine the filesystem that contains the /var/log/vmware/journal/ directory, run the command:
df -h /var/log/vmware/journal/

Delete or archive the unnecessary files on this filesystem to free up disk space. For more information on reviewing and addressing disk space consumption, see Investigating disk space on an ESX host (1003564).
