how to make "fsck -o full" not interactive.

Hi,

If I give fsck -o full /dev/vg12_hickory_BCVS@vg15_EMC0387_MSM8x8/lvprodd it will give
fsck: /etc/default/fs is used for determining the file system type
log replay in progress
pass0 - checking structural files
pass1 - checking inode sanity and blocks
pass2 - checking directory linkage
pass3 - checking reference counts
pass4 - checking resource maps
OK to clear log? (ynq)y
set state to CLEAN? (ynq)y

So every time I have to give "y" to go to the next line. Is there any way so that it will take the default value as "y" ?

Thanks

Re: how to make "fsck -o full" not interactive.

From the man page:

"-y|-Y
Assume a "yes" response to all prompts by fsck. Additionally, if the file system requires a full file system check after the log replay, or if the nolog suboption causes the log replay to be skipped and the file system is not clean, then a full file system check is performed."

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
