Hi all

I've running Icsitarget on an ubuntu hardy server here for months. i 
have have it tied into an vmware esxi server as part of our test 

Today however the target lun seems to be completely blank. If I rescan 
it in esxi it find the lun and shows it to be the right size and then 
tells me thats it's blank and wants to reformat it.

Now i know the lun has 4 virtual machines and i'd really like to be able 
to recover these rather then have to rebuild them.

Does anyone have any bright ideas as to how I go about doing this? Is 
there a way to mount the lun locally so that I can recover everything 
and copy it off somewhere before I reformat it?
