This is a weird case of lost vm disk. I have a Windows Server 2008 guest running on OV 3.2. The server is working fine, but, when I check the console (web or CLi) shows that the guest doesn't have a disk associated.
However, the server is writing files on... a phantom disk I guess...
OVM> show vm name=wserver2008
Command: show vm name= wserver2008

-------> no VmDiskMapping
But if I run on the server xm --list by id:
[root@oraserv ~]# xm list --long 0004fb0000060000c890071eb9bce1df -->id of the guest
file:/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000ecb93bb102f63ab3/VirtualDisks/0004fb00001200000752c3eee6847633.img ---> the disk reference appears
Also I did a :
[root@oraserv ~]# find /OVS/Repositories/ -name 0004fb00001200000752c3eee6847633.img and the file is missing.
We have a previous similar case an year ago and, when the guest was restarted it didn't come up showing a missing disk error. So we know that if we reset this server it won't boot again.
So, the questions that maybe someone could answer )and help me!) are:
- how can I check where is the missing vdisk file
- how is possible for a guest to run OK if it doesn't have a disk!!
thanks for your kindly help. Bye!
