VisorFSObj: 1954: Cannot create file /var/lib/vmware/hostd/journal/1462853708.8163 for process hostd-worker because the inode table of its ramdisk (root) is full.

Problem : No vMotion , No possibility to start VM

in vmware.log on ESXi host is like below

VisorFSObj: 1954: Cannot create file /var/lib/vmware/hostd/journal/1462853708.8163 for process hostd-worker because the inode table of its ramdisk (root) is full.

All articles talking about snmpd but snmpd was not working for us but inodes table is still full .

Command to see inode usage is : esxcli system visorfs ramdisk list

To Solve the problem ;

You can use any way to handle it until find out this article but better solution is try to stop unused services like if its HP you can stop some of it like ams or stop CIM services , vm or something like that to free up inodes and then try to move vms on that server to go !

I know its not good solution but this is the last thing we can do to solve the problem before find better solution 😉
