Lost Partition on Citrix XenServer
Posted on 2014-04-28
We have 2 Servers with Citrix XEN 6.2. Both today suddenly both had troubles.
Both Server are Stand Alone with a Raid1 Disk for the System and a Raid5 Disk for the VM's.
It seems that both machines dropped the connection to the Raid5 Drive.
The Raid5 Disk is unplugged. When wie try pbd-plug [UUID] we get following error
Error code: SR_BACKEND_FAILURE_52
Error parameters: , Logical Volume mount/activate error [opterr=Unable to activa te LV. Errno is 5]
an fdisk -l tells us that there is no partition on the /dev/sdb device.
[root@hskxen02 ~]# fdisk -l
