vmware directories deleted but running vm's still up/running/accessible SUSE 10.2 host
Posted on 2007-04-02
I have a good one. Suse 10.2 running on a Dell PowerEdge server. On this server I am running the free version of VMware 1.0.1. I have the VMware server console up and running.. I can access all my Windows 2k3 server vm's through the server console and remote desktop.
The Virtual Machine directory is /home/Virtual Machines/
I was ssh'd into the host Suse machine and ***GET THIS*** ACCIDENTALLY!!!!! typed rm -rd /home/
so by the time I realized it wasn't doing what I wanted it to do I hit CTRL+C
ok. so now I have a MINIMAL Virtual Machine directory (almost completely deleted) but as I mentioned earlier.. All VM's are up/running/accessible!!!!!! I am copying all important information to EXTERNAL but am afraid to do anything if there may be a chance to get those virtual directories back.
so.. vmware and vm's up and running but the directories which the vm's are no longer there on the host computer..
any suggestions??? HELP PLEASE!!! I have been looking for undelete stuff but haven't found much..
