I got a SAN from a client, it was RAID 5. just finished rebuilding the raid and creating a single img.
now I can see the volumes are VMFS and inside it VM and the user data inside VM.

How can I access the user data inside the VM?

UFS only see VMFS volume and cannot open its files and the client needs the data inside the VM which is inside the VMFS Volume.

after reading about found VMFS store blocks as jbod inside the volume.

Perhaps you didn't reconstruct the RAID correctly?
