VOMA failed to check device: Severe corruption detected

This post was originally published on this site

I had a disk fail yesterday, and after the rebuild I noticed one of my datastores was missing.  I see the device but not the associated datastore.


/vmfs/devices/disks/eui.30f9584100d00000:1                                                         59cd3f06-381b631f-8b26-002590707790  0  raid


I am running vSphere 6.5


When I run VOMA I get the following output:


[root@ESX-1:/var/log] voma -m vmfs -f check -d /vmfs/devices/disks/eui.30f9584100d00000

Is there anyway to do a repair on the device in question?


Thanks for any help
