How can I mount an IBM AIX hard drive in Windows?

IBM AIX (5) Server experienced a Hardware Crash, and I'd like to recover data directly from the hard drives. I moved the SCSI drives to a Windows Server, but they show up as "Unpartitioned Space". Can I somehow "mount" the AIX File System in Windows to recover files, or is there a Windows based utility that will allow me to view and recover files from the AIX drives?

    Thanks for the response, JaxPlanet. I was actually able to recover what I needed with a product called EnCase. It is a forensics based recovery system that supports all known file systems, including JFS2 in my case. It's very expensive, but if you're in the recovery business, I'd have to say that it's a "must have", and I can also tell you that it'll pay for itself the first time you have to use it.

    Hello,
    I reviewed this info about Encase you were describing. Are you sure you were able to recover the files using Encase? My research led me to believe that you can only view the files.
    Can you confirm one way or another, please?

AIX uses a file system that is not supported by Microsoft Windows. Most likely you will need another AIX system to read the file system. I recommend that you contact a hard drive recovery service like Ontrack Data Recovery and get some guidance.

You should remove it from the Windows computer ASAP. Windows has the habit of making changes to any disk it sees and you may lose everything!

I hope this helps.

Hitachi hard disk model no. Dk23ba-20 crached. it isnot working. is theire any way to make it workable.


It depends on your definition of "crashed" -- if it still spins and works, but the copy of Windows stored on the disk no longer successfully boots into Windows, that's one type of "crash",
and you can recover (by reinstalling Windows).

If it does not spin, or nothing can be read from the disk, that's another type of "crash",
and it's usually a "fatal" problem -- the hardware will never work again.

However, there exist professional "data recovery" services, that can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to _once_ read your files and copy them to a new disk-drive.
Example: http://www.seagate.com has "no-charge-if-we-cannot-recover-your-files".

DDS-5 not compatible with windows 2008


I am pretty sure that the driver should be compatible with win08.

If you are using backup exec then try switching to use symantec drivers for your tape drive (setting withing BUEX)

If it is just the tape that cant be read or identified and was backed up using windows backup then try restoring the backup on a 2003 server and then copying the data across the network.

Can I install Windows Server on IBM RS/6000 51A Server ?


No. The IBM has a RISC processor and Windows only supports Intel or AMD. It does support some versions of linux if you want a GUI interface. :-)
