Repair VMFS

#1 Post by morteza205 »

Hi everybody
We have an encluser connected to hp p411 raid controller that vmware ESXi 5.x used that as datastore.
yesterday by mistake the encluser connected to our SAN (hp p2000 g3) but we disconnected as we found out .
The HP Smart Start says that the Raid is OK and healthy But ESXi Doesn't run and even the linux command "parted -l" cant list the partition.
The "testdisk" can find the correct partition But says "the following partition can't be recovered".
any one has any idea how to recover over 2TB data in this situation?

(the ESXi installed on SD Card)
