  • Problem accessing a VMDK File

    We had a user rename a bunch of files on our file server by mistake last week. Unfortunately we were unable to find any incremental backups to restore the individual files from, so instead I had to restore the entire VCB from the File server to our backup server which is a physical server. The issue that I am having now is that the file server is over 400GB. We don't have that much space available in any of our data stores to run the Vmware Converter and bring it into the live environment, so I thought I would mount the VMDK's using the VMWARE-Mount utility on the Backup Server instead. The OS resides on the C: drive, and the data resides on the D: drive. I am able to mount the C: drive successfully as it is comprised of only 1 VMDK file, however the D: drive is comprised of 2 VMDK files.

    Is there any way I can mount 2 VMDK files to 1 drive letter using the VMWARE-MOUNT utility? Or perhaps suggest any other application available that would be able to do this?

    I was able to mount the 2 vmdk files using the MOUNTVM.EXE VCB utility.

      Could you supply the command you used to achieve this.

      It may help others in the same situation in the future.
