This morning i decreased the siz of a LUN on our netapp storage device. At first all seemed well and then i got a notification that my WSUS server could not be contacted. So i went to the server and tried to connect through console using Vsphere client and could not.
So i tried powering off the VM and powering it back on at it seems like it cannot find the disk. I tried building a new vm and using the same disk and it also cannot find the disk.
Unfortunately i cannot do a restore because i am in the process of re-configuring the backups and haven't gotten to WSUS yet.
Is there a way to repair VMDKs? If so that would be freaking amazing and save me time rebuilding a WSUS server tonight.
I've heard vdiskmanager can do this but we do not have Vmware workstation and i do not know if i can do it another way.
