Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: Server Booting Failed

That sounds really bad. If your /usr is a different file system, is not mounting, maybe because a file system problem/corruption. You should run fsck.

If you don't have a separate file system for /usr, then you should boot in emergency or rescue mode using the installation CD to verify your file systems and data.

Re: Server Booting Failed

1.Go to rescue mode using the RHEL installation CD with the boot option:

linux rescue

if vg00 not getting mounted automaically.

2.Try to activate the volume groups by running the commands below:

vgchange -ay

3.If vg00 is acitaved Further fsck test can be done using:

tune2fs -l /dev/vg00/lv01 | grep Block

Take note of the Block size.

e2fsck -b -n /dev/vg00/lv01
