    Esxi 4.1 crashed can't recover data

    glaucomar Lurker

      Hello,

      after a raid disk fault the server couldn' t boot and I restarted the system using the repair function from the installation cd but the system couldn't restore the data.

      After the operation loggin in with the console I can see a list of partition. How can I try to restore the vmfs partition and try to recover the data. I read something about a live cd with some tool than can be used but I couldn't find any download,

       

      here is the result of fdisk:

       

      ~ # fdisk -l

      Disk /dev/disks/mpx.vmhba1:C0:T1:L0: 899.9 GB, 899985717248 bytes

      Partition table entries are not in disk order

       

      Thanks for your help
