hello,

let there be some "Status: IO-Error" for a VM, for example bacause of out-of-diskspace condition.

Where can i see more details about such errors, i searched a while but can find no logfile containing it.

I had some host where VMs got io errors from time to time and i would have found out the reasoy much sooner, if i knew that IO-errors where getting caused becauso of intermittent lack of diskspace.

regards
Roland

You should be able to navigate to Node > Task History. There you will find a list of all tasks, find the one that caused the error and double click it.
