How Can I Obtain Data Disk Information If Tools Are Deleted?

If Tools are uninstalled from a Linux ECS in a non-PVOPS system, data disks cannot be identified. In such a case, you can obtain information about these data disks by creating a new ECS and attaching the data disks of the original ECS to the new ECS. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Log in to the management console and create a new ECS.
    NOTE:

    The new ECS must be located in the same AZ and have the same parameter settings as the original ECS.

  2. (Optional) On the Elastic Cloud Server page, locate the row containing the original ECS, click More in the Operation column, and select Stop. On the Stop ECS page, select Forcibly stop and Yes and click OK to forcibly stop the original ECS.

    Manually refresh the Elastic Cloud Server page. The original ECS is stopped once the Status changes to Stopped.

    NOTE:

    The ECSs running certain OSs support online data disk detaching. If your OS supports this feature, you can detach data disks from the running ECS.

  3. Click to view information about the data disks attached to the original ECS.
    NOTE:

    If the original ECS has multiple data disks attached, repeat steps 4 to 6 to attach each data disk to the new ECS.

  4. Click a data disk.

    The Elastic Volume Service page is displayed.

  5. Select the data disk to be detached and click Detach in the Operation column. On the Detach Disk page, select the original ECS and click OK to detach the data disk from the original ECS.

    Manually refresh the Elastic Volume Service page. The data disk is detached from the original ECS once the Status changes to Available.

  6. Select the detached data disk and click Attach in the Operation column. On the Attach Disk page, click the new ECS, select a device name, and click OK to attach the data disk to the new ECS.

    Manually refresh the EVS list. The data disk is attached to the new ECS once the Status value changes to In-use. You can then log in to the management console and view information about the data disk of the new ECS.
