Corrupted Files from iSCSI Targets
Posted on 2013-10-30
We have a Netgear ReadyNAS 4200 with two iSCSI targets attached to a VM named Fstor.
Last week the Host of the VMs (running Server 2008 R2) had it's RAID controller fail and as a temporary fix, we attached the iSCSI targets to another VM (called Temp) on another host.
Users could then access the network drives and save etc to the ReadyNAS,
After fixing the RAID controller, we turned on the host and started using it as per normal. However, we didn't disconnect it from the Temp VM before doing so.
Users then remapped their drives to the original host,
As you can probably guess, we have had a number of files get corrupted during this whole process. We can't access the files through either the Fstor route OR the Temp route. When trying to open the file the system returns an error resembling "File is unreadable, or corrupt" etc.
I'm backing up all the files I currently have access to an am planning to do Chkdsks etc. Anyone have any tips?
