VMware View 5.1 error: This desktop currently has no desktop sources available

Scenario
You may come across the below errors while trying to a view desktop using view client. The errors can be appearing on different screens while navigating in View Administrator, windows event log in connection server or on your client device.
 
Error 1 : When you clicked on your pool “The datastores used for the pool are low on disk space”
v1
 
 
Error 2 : This message appears when you hit the connect button in your view client window “This desktop currently has no desktop sources available..”
v2
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
While Error no. 1 can be misleading (because the datastore is not full and has lot of free space) and Error no. 2 is very generic as this error can appear on various scenarios.
 
Cause
On View Administrator side, when you go to Pools > it gives a message “the datastores used for the pool are low on disk space”. This is because I changed the datastore name in vCenter to match the standard nomenclature in my lab env. Which resulted in these errors on the View side.
 
Lesson learnt (precaution)
Never make any changes on the vCenter side without taking appropriate measures on the View side. View is very sensitive to the vCenter environment changes on which it is hosted.
