I own an HP Proliant Gen-6 ML350 server which is not turning on again after a power outage. According to my research it is most likely due to a failue of the power supply backplane or the power supply, alternatively the mainboard, a CPU or a combination thereof. I'm going to try fixing it but don't hold up great hopes.
I have five 300GB SAS drives in RAID 5 configuration and since my server won't boot up I would like to recover data on that RAID. This data has been backed up weeks ago but I would really like to access the recent data.
However, I do not have another HP system to rebuild the RAID on. I do however have a Windows workstation with an LSI RAID card and I am wondering whether I could plug the five drives into that and then use software such as Stellar Data Recovery to recover it?
An important note is that the server is a VMware ESXi server and the data I wish to recover is from the VMs that were stored within the VMFS datastore.
Do I have any chance at recovering this?
