This indicates that the directory has been badly corrupted and will have to be restored from backup tapes.

Re: unable to mount file system

Hello,

OLT is nothing but Object Location Table, which is used at the time of mounting a filesystem.

OLT gets corrupt due to scenario's like unexpected shutdown etc..

I hope the only way to recover is restoring from the recent back-up as Bill mentioned earlier..

Re: unable to mount file system

as a last option just before restoring,
you may try to fsck from alternate blocks

sck -o full -y -b

list of alternate super blocks is stored in /etc/sbtab

or u can try 16, 8240 or 16464 as they are common values.
