Last week I had 2 ssd's fail on my RAID10 array of 4 ssd's. I managed to rebuild the RAID, however then a 3rd ssd failed so had to rebuild that - the end result was that it rebuilt all OK.
It is worth noting this server runs ESXi with around 10 hosts running ubuntu 14.04 ( I know its on my list to patch). ESXi boots up and I can log into it and see no errors - perfect, however it's a different story with my vm's.
Issue begins when I boot up any VM running ubuntu, I get presented with the rescue grub stating the normal.mod file is missing. I check all the partitions but I am unable to find any .mod files. I then find a solution to recover the .mod files if they are not there by using the kernel files (https://gutsytechster.wordpress.com/2018/07/24/how-to-resolve-grub-error-file-grub-i386-pc-normal-mod-not-found/). Unfortunately this didn't work.
When I try and present a live CD and try to recover the boot drive I go through these steps:
- Select device to use as root system
- Try and execute a shell in said root system
My question is, after all of this, is there any hope left or is it a case of rebuilding everything?
Thanks in advance,
