Recovery VPS or dedicated server


Each owner of a virtual or dedicated server wants his server to work stably and not fall. But sometimes you have to deal with the restoration of the system. This can result from an unsuccessful system update, an annoying typo in the settings of the network card and a lot of other things.

What tools are available to cryo-hosting for recover VPS jobs that are running KVM?

To begin with, KVM virtualization is full hardwarevirtualization, and it allows you to monitor and, if necessary, intervene in the VPS boot process, i.e. You can access a VPS before it loads. This allows you to work with VPS in single user mode, which will be useful if you need to check the file system, virtual server and in other cases. All this can be done by activating the VNC console through the panel control SoluVM and connect to the VPS via the VNC console, which provides to all KVM VPS users. Also, using SolusVM, you can boot a VPS from a special “rescue” disk (Rescue System) by connecting it in the “CDRom” section.

Here are the most interesting utilities of the Rescue System disk that allow you to restore the VPS running on Windows or Linux:

sfdisk is a utility for managing disk partitions. Allows you to save a disk partition table to a file and restore the partition table from a file.

FSArchiver is a utility that allows you to save the contents of the file system file (archive).

TestDisk is a utility with which it is possible to recover a deleted partition (ReiserFS, NTFS, EXT2 / 3/4 and others) of a disk.

NTFS-3g is a utility that allows you to mount NTFS partitions in read / write mode.

Midnight Commander – File Manager (similar to Far), allows you to copy / delete / rename files, etc.

Chkrootkit is a utility that allows you to scan Linux OS files for malicious rootkits (malware).
