when I run fsck in single mode, the server doesn't do anything.

when I run fsck in single mode, the server doesn't do anything.

I have alphaserver es40.
normally the server works but a several hours later it goes down to halt mode.

I want it to do fsck.

To do this, I booted the server single mode.
when I execute fsck, the server doesn't do anything.

How can I run fsck ?


Thanks

Why do you _want_ to run fsck?

man fsck

Do you _have_ any UFS file systems? (Or are
they all AdvFS?)

For AdvFS file domains use the following commands to check consistency :

/sbin/advfs/verify

and

/sbin/advfs/fixfdmn
