We just received a new massive server and are currently moving our VMs into it. However one of our ESXi has a faulty disk and has some VMs that already failed a couple of times.
Currently we use scp in order to move the machines, as using VMware converter will require 3 machines instead of two (and we don't have an extra machine for that process online 24/7)
However, as for this VM I don't think that scp will manage to transfer such amount of data, we have already tried it on some dummy machine created on the faulty-disk-ESXi and it failed,
I do not want to use dd, I only wish to move the VMs (there are many on this machine, and I'm only interested in a couple of them) , so clonezilla/ghost/etc are out of the race too
I'm looking for a better, realiable, solution than scp that will transfer large amount of data w/o failing from several disk reads
I was wondering if anyone in serverfault could hint for a better solution that might succeed ?
