The more I look into ESX the more often i have to handle cases where the partition table of a disk with a VMFS volume gets corrupted. The reasons for this can be
* idiot user * failed update * power failure * ....
I guess you guys must already have something like a usual procedure on how to work through this cases.
I am especially interested in a straight fast way to find out if the VMFS volume itself is corrupted beyond repair.
So far I use very time consuming attempts with scans with Testdisk and similar tools. Do you have better / faster ways ?
