    Repairing a Corrupted VMware Server

      Hi,

       

       

      Im running ESXi 4.0 with vCenter Server.  The otherday we had an issue with one of our hosts crashing, after hours of investigation it seems that one of the Guests was to blame.

       

       

      Everytime i try to add the Server to the inventory the vCenter Server Service crashes out disconnecting the console and not completing.  It i try to reconvert the vmx i get a IO error when it tries to read the source, and i cant start it on ESXi because it wont inventory.

       

       

      Is there anything i can do to repair it?  My guess is the disks are corrupted and its ended up half way between a snapshot.

       

       

      Any help is much appriciated

       

       

      thanks
