Lost guest server after cold migration to ESX 3.0.1
After I've done more that a hundred guests server cold migrations to ESX 3.0.1 without any problems, I decided to speed up the conversion by skipping the backup/snapshot process for one server.
So I powered it off fine and cold migration went fine - no errors. Same for virtual hardware upgrade. However my Linux box is not booting and what is worst, when I tried to boot with a recovery CD; with fdisk I can not see any partition table and is complaining about
"invalid flag 0x0000 of partition table 4 will be corrected by w(rite)"
This was a RedHat ES 4 server with BusLogic controller that was cold migrated by relocating its vmdk disk file to an VMFS3 partition.
Have anyone encountered this and can help me to recover this server?
