  • Access VMDKs from ContentStore without restore. Possible?
    Posted: 04-26-2019, 5:59 PM

    Hi there,


    I use a cool program that can open and restore files from inside VMDKs, that supports all the major filesystems (including Linux fs, raid, LVM, etc) without me having to use the FBR (that I find quite slow).

    Problem is that I have to first restore the VMDK files to a staging location, and only then can I open it with the tool.

    Is there any way to "live mount" the datastore on the CommServe, and have access to the VMDKs? I mean, really see the VMDKs from the contentstore on a directory, not live mount the VM to a ESXi host.
