Hi, I have an ESXi 6.7 node (Dell PowerEdge R630) which is no longer boot.

I get this message:

Both of the Internal Dual Secure Digital Module (IDSDM) SD card media are missing, or not responding. 
Make sure both the SD card media are properly installed and retry the system start up. If the issue persists, replace the  SD card media. 

Open in new window

(I have just one SD card on this server).

In your opinion is it possibile to try repair filesystem on SD card, before declaring it definitely dead?

Thank you
