[WPXperVideo id=459 ]hi welcome to the reclaimer channel and today we talk about the recovery then is software used to virtualized hardware typically Zen is used by hosting providers and small data centers in order for virtual machines to function Xion should store disk images of virtual machines now let’s discuss how data storage is agonised in vision servers there is no GN file system as such that is gene servers can appear it with either a new block devices for example with partitions on the disks or with a host file system to store disk images of virtual machines Xion uses which t format there are two ways to store which the files the first way is typical files inside the host file system typically XT file system a let’s illustrate the first available we have Hardware read C Hardware read v the capacity of which is allocated for the boot partition and for a partition holding a host file system typically e xt file system which the files are stored inside this host file system let it be three VHD files which d1 we need a how-to and we do file 3 in real life you will have dozens of them another way is when a video file is written directly to a partition theoretically almost any partitioning scheme can be used however in practice this is typically LVM allowing to extend a partition dynamically that’s providing thin provisioning let’s illustrate a similar to the previous case at the top level we have a hardware rate for example a hardware raid 5 then we have a partition holding the input data at the next level there is a VM metadata storing a pointers to the multiple album of volumes LVM volume 1 and LVM volumes in real life you will have much more vm volumes each l vm of volume is used to store a particular VHD file that is l vm of volume 1 is used to store only the content of a VHD file 1 l vm tool is used for which d-file to typically you have a Zen server using enterprise level storage which is known to be used along with Linux or Zen of a transition platform for example from Citrix now let’s discuss what approaches are used to recover data from Zen servers no matter what scheme is implemented you need to understand that finally you need to get rich deep files which in the first case are stood in the host file system while in another case which the files are stored directly in the partitions if a sincere were uses LVM volumes to store user data that is host file system is not involve two storage D to recover data you should connect all the disks to PC and if needed to be constructor it first check that LVM partitioning scheme is enabled for analysis then every claim a bra scan the disks including reconstructed rate select each needed LVM volume one by one and make raw images of them since partitions already store date in which the format you do not need to create which the files again by the way you can verify that you deal with VHD by checking first and last sector of the partition which both should start with a string connectives rename the created images by aging a VHD extension to them mount disk image files one by one in Disk Management sometimes when mounting vision in Windows you can get an error saying that VHD image is corrupt and therefore cannot be mounted it can be due to the differences between which de formats used in Windows and in cm in this case you can use gizmo Drive software to mount the recovery THD files the alternative option is to input the recovered which the files into new gen installation the second case is when a host file system is used to store which the files as well as in the previous case first you need connect disks to PC indefinite reconstruct a read first then you need to have weekly report scan all the disks including a reconstructed read then you need to identify the partition containing a host file system and skin it as I have already mentioned typically this is XT file system and finally you need to copy which the files in the same way you do with any other files once which the files extracted you need to mount them in Windows or or in put them in turn you see an installation that’s all about then recovery if you like our videos subscribe to the Recreational reclaim e team of us with you see you soon
