HP SAS 2tb disk predicted to fail soon, need recover data in it...

Here's my problem hope some one can put me in the correct path...

I have 2 Proliant DL180 G6 servers with almost identical hardware, but the Hard Drives

-No.1 have only one 2tb sas disk with VMvare ESXI 5.0 (predicted to fail soon)

-No.2 Have 2 2Tb sas disk in Raid mirror with Wndows Server 2008 R2.

I took the fail HD from the ESXI server and put it on the Windows Server, it read the disk and mounted 3 logcal disk with some data from ESXI server but obviously not the Linux partition where ESXI stored the data of my virtual machine that I need to recover.

But my problem is when I tryed to put back the Fail HD to his original Server, it says that no have any logical hd in the P410 Smart Controller, and I'm affraid if I do a logical drive may I will lose the HD data?

Can some one help me?

Hi m8, 

 

When you put ESXi hdd to the server with Windows to which slot did you put in the server? 

During the system booting did controller give you any notification about port changes?

 

Thanks,
