We have just had a power issue and our ESX (ESXi 4.1.0) host lost power and then rebooted. All but one of the virtual servers have rebooted with no problem, however one of them refused to power up.
I try to power it on and I get the following error:
File <unspecified filename> was not found Reason: The system cannot find the file specified. Cannot open the disk '/vmfs/volumes/4e03076e-90834647-b846-001185c38f42/LAMP- Stack/turnkey-lamp-11.3-lucid-x86.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. VMware ESX cannot find the virtual disk "/vmfs/volumes/4e03076e-90834647-b846- 001185c38f42/LAMP-Stack/turnkey-lamp-11.3-lucid-x86.vmdk". Verify the path is valid and try again.
I have logged into the ESX host to see if the file is there an have found only the following file that matches the filename:
I notice that the above file has '-s001' after the filename. Is this recoverable?
Any help of advice is greatly appreciated!
Running ls -l on the directory that contains the file shows this:
drwxr-xr-t 1 root root 1680 Feb 9 09:49 4e03076e-90834647-b846-001185c38f42
The databrowser file system looks like this:
and in a different directory there is the file that matches the missing one:
