Mounting VMWare-Volumes/Disks with Debian

Some time ago a vmware server did not recognize any more a data disk. This disk was formatted with vmfs v3 (enter the vmware server via ssh and type mount..). First thing i did, was creating an image of this disk, to play around without any danger of data loss.

There is a good article how to mount vmfs, but on debian i had to install the package otherosfs.

After i installed this package, i got the following error:

root@debian:/tmp# vmfs-fuse image /mnt/vm
VMFS VolInfo: invalid magic number 0x00000000
VMFS: Unable to read volume information
Trying to find partitions 
But: Do not worry about this error message. The image was mounted on /mnt/vm and accessible without any problem...
