Citrix XenServer 5.6 - Failed Disk

Hi

I am running Citrix Xenserver 5.6 and unfortunately suffered a fault with both of the disks that I have in this server!  The faulty disks have been fixed but I am suffering 2 problems from this original issue.  Since the disks have been replaced I have been unable to start 3 of the 5 VMs on there (all Windows 2008R2).  The error I get is "The SR backed failed to complete the oepration".  I've yet to find a way around this issue but I have backups so attempted to recover from a backup and delete the broken VM.  This worked for me without problems so I removed the older VM and went to restore the next one.  The problem I now have is that there is not enough disk space to recover from backup for the other VMs.  I have tried the solution as suggested by Ctirix but this does not work for me (http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX123400).  Any ideas on this would be great.  Fortunately this is just a test server so nothing too serious but would very much like to be able to get these VMs back and running asap.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

how much disk space is used / left on your XenServer LocalStorage and how much does your VM need ? Simply connect meanwhile another cheap SATA drive to use to reactivate your machine and maybe use it to be internal backup drive for later on.
