I managed to delete /bin on an esx server... the vmachines are still up and I've managed to grab another copy of /bin from another server and present it to the original server, in a different location (on a separate disk).
Is there any way I can copy the contents from the different location? I have one SSH session open to the box. Whenever I try and use the <new location>/bin/cp to copy it back to /bin I get a bash:... cannot execute binary file.

Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated....!
