2 drive failure in a RAID 5. I have the SR with the VLM's but cannot recover the VDI's - Help!

Gerry Cohn


I have managed to recover 99.99% of the RAID 5 array using ddrescue but unfortunately I have lost all of the metadata.
I have followed CTX136342 and can see the SR in XenCenter.
If I understand things correctly I should be able to recover some key information from 'state.db' to help manually re-create the VDI's for the VM's.
I have downloaded the XAPI Database Parsing Tool - Windows but it does nothing except copy some of it's own files into the directory where I have the 'state.db' file stored.


Am I mis-interpreting the procedure for Restoring the Mapping Manually?


Any help is greatfully received.
