How to recover my VMs when data-components is presents

ITNOA

Hi all,

As I asked in https://communities.vmware.com/thread/592645,

I have two SuperMicro servers and install `ESXI 6.0.0` on both of them and create vSAN with them and installs all VMs on `vsanStorage`. and each of them have two SSD storage with RAID 1 and two HDD with RAID 1. after power failure in my data center, all VM's in one server is orphaned and all VM's in another server is inaccessible.

After much work on this issue and get lot of help from TheBobkin​ , I run

# cmmds-tool find -f python | grep CONFIG_STATUS -B 4 -A 6 | grep 'uuid\|content' | grep -o 'state\\\":\ [0-9]*' | sort | uniq -c

command and see below results

172.16.0.11:

     44 state\": 28

     13 state\": 7

172.16.0.12:

     44 state\": 28

     13 state\": 7

As you can see many of my VM virtual hard disk health has two parts and all of them healthy like below

At now I have a question, how to recover these hard disks? and recover my data? at least for 13 objects have state 13

My data is very important for me.

Thanks a lot

Hi soroshsabz,

Hello Chris,

That kb you referenced has nothing to do with vSAN nor any relevance to the problem - the above indicates he/she only has stale copy of data (Config State: 28), what you linked will not help.

Please refrain from taking a shotgun approach and spamming irrelevant replies.
