Dell server with 1 terabyte local storage at our remote office.
We loaded it with memory and are running esxi 4.1 from a usb stick….
we built a guest(virtual Machine) on that host
We wonder what would happen should the flash drive ever go bad…
We pulled out the existing flash drive and replaced it with a new one containing esxi preloaded.
We put the configuration in and saw that we can see the storage and files in it .. but we cannot bring up our guest virtual machine.…
We see the vmdk files but can not bring it up via vsphere client..
How do you recover if your esxi flash drive failed and needed to be replaced?
