I am trying to make a disk image of our call manager 7.1(2) server before running the 7.1(3) patch and I have a disk error or a bad sector on it. I was wondering if there is a disk check like option on the recovery disc? I had another server crash on me the last time I tried to boot from a disc so I am hesitant to try if this doesn't have it. It runs linux so there is no simple dskChk option. Has anyone done this before?
honestly, its easier to simply run DRS (backup). Replace the drive(s) reload CUCM 7.1(2) and restore from backup.
I have not heard of anyone trying to use a disc imaging software on CUCM. Plus if the drives are mirrored, you should be able to shut down the server, pull the bad drive, push in a drive and let it rebuild on its own.
