Mirrored SSD OS drive failure


New Member
Jun 19, 2023
I have started playing with Proxmox on a SuperMIcro server, and recently the OS failed. I don't think it was a single drive failure, because GParted is able to see and recognize both hard drives. For some reason the server just won't boot into Proxmox. I have tried to remove each drive individually, and had no success. I'm wondering if it's an issue with the boot partition?

Either way, I was hoping to see what steps I could take to access the data on the drives to pull the VM configs and VM disk files from the ZFS pool. What can I do to mount the partitions on the hard drive inside of my desktop computer (Running Debian 11) so I can extract that information?

I'd like to save this data before I go through any hoops to try and recover the OS because I am still new to Proxmox, and ZFS. I don't have anything mission critical on the drives, but I am trying to learn the ins and outs of this all as I go along.

Any helpful tips and tricks would be greatly apprecaited.

Thank you!
