    I had an NFS store die on me (entire unit) and I had to send the drives to recover the data. My main SQL database was on the affected machine and I need some advice on the next step.

    Assuming they can retrieve the vmdk file I know I can get to it via VMWare mount utility, but I would like to mount the system into my ESX system.

    The files will be stripped from NFS and placed on a NTFS file structure so I need some advice on how I can move it back to the ESX server and then create a VM to use the disk.

    —-

    From other posts it looks like I can use the wizard and point to the folder and the vmdk file (is this correct?), but I have never tried it.

    I think I will be transferring the file(s) via the Datastore tab in Vcenter (to local storage), is there a better way?
