This may be a duplicate but I think the situation is different.
We were having problems with a HP MSA2000 SAN, speaking to support they suggested that we upgraded the firmware to the latest version and clear out one of the VDISKS which had a problem.
Patched the firmware and then 3 days later removed the VDISK, however there was a bug in the firmware which meant the meta data for the disks was being written across multiple VDISKS, this meant when I removed the failing VDISK, it deleted 2 healthy ones.
I thought this would not be a problem, but it looks like 2 of my VM's hosted on the healthy VDISKS did not have backups of one specific file and the VM level backups had become corrupted.
My question is, is it possible to rebuild the array that these disks where on, as the data should all still be there.
There where 8 disks setup in RAID 10. I have been looking at data recovery companies and this seems to be an option but I feel as the data should still be held on the disks as they have not been over written. Is there a way I can get this data back ASAP? Again, one issue I am facing is that other than a SAN unit, I do not have space to put 8 disks and a boot disk into a server so any suggestions would be great.
And yes, I know the backup policy needs to include testing the backups have worked correctly.
