      Ciao

       

      - I deleted the raid10 configuration by a Dell perc H700 controller on which lay a esxi host with two Vm

      - I rebuilt the same type of existing volume raid10 previously but without initializing.

      - Esxi does not start and says "Recovery VMware Hypervisor" and must not be over.

      - Boot with MOA64-Recovery-environment (a fantastic job)

       

       

      - root@moon:~# parted -l

      Model: DELL PERC H700 (scsi)

      Disk /dev/sda: 1023GB

      Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B

      Partition Table: gpt

      - Sda3 is my datastore

       

      - root@moon:~# vmfs-fuse /dev/sda3 /mnt/vmfs

      VMFS VolInfo: invalid magic number 0x00000000

      VMFS: Unable to read volume information

      Trying to find partitions

      Unable to open device/file "/dev/sda3".

      Unable to open filesystem

       

       

       

       

      I was left with only LOURDES or I can find a solution yet?

       

      thank you
