Esxi 6.5 raid degraded, restore from dumpfile

Hello,

Sometimes ago we have a problem with our server, raid was degraded,esxi 5.5 died.

Now we have installed esxi 6.5, everythings work fine but one from our virtual machine which was installed on hardware raid its in weird state.

We see all the structure but file is saved in vmkdump folder and on it there is only one file *.dumpfile. Is there any possinility to restore this machine?

Hi

Check your storage path for flat.vmdk files. if there is the flat file, you can restore your VM from that file, if not, you can use 3rd party software to restore files from VMFS datastores.
