I have a RH linux server but it is crashed , now this server can't connect cdrom , can't connect network and even can't boot , I have a important file inside the HD , I want to get back the file , if I unplug the HD and plug it to a windows server , can I see the file from windows explorer ? if not , could suggest the way how to get back the file ? thx
I don't know much about RH server, however, if there is a rescue mode then you could certainly use it to mount the partition and find the file in question. Just be careful not to do any kind of destructive partitioning or formating on the partition and your data will certainly be accessible...
Thx reply , I can boot with the knoppox linux cd , the server can connect internet now , but only found the below device path , could suggest how can I see my original path (eg. /home/ , /usr , / tmp etc, because I hv a important file at these path ) ? thx
You have to mount the devices for which mountpoints should be under /mnt. If you can't find the mountpoints do: "sudo fdisk -l" to see if your disks/partitions are correctly identified. Mount with for example: "sudo mount /mnt/hda1"
