[Xen-users] VDI metadata corruption

Hi everybody,

Asked this on the Citrix storage forum and so far no replies...  I'd
really love to find a solution.   Thanks for reading and thanks even
more if you can help!

I'm running XenServer 5.6 SP2. I have a 2TB VDI that, when connected
to a VM, prevents the VM from turning on. I don't know how the VDI got
corrupted in the first place, it had been running fine for months and
then one day one of the 5 VDIs on this VM decided to disconnect
itself, the other 4 are fine. So far I have been unable to find a way
to fix this corrupted VDI. "vhd-util repair" appeared to have no

I am inexperienced with XenServer, but as far as I can tell, the
problem looks to be in the VDI's metadata. I've included the output of
vhd-util's check. I'd appreciate any info that you could give me on
how to fix this VDI and on how it might have gotten corrupted in the
first place.

And what's a "batmap"? :)
