Are you sure it's ok? At least a full fsck should be run.

I/O error, you must ensure that you hardware RAID is correct. What is your server model?

Re: Input/output error

I had a similar problem with Dell, that is why I'm asking. In that opportunity, data corruption ocurred. There is a problem with the RAID controller/disk/firmware, I don't know, but after a disk failure, this happened.

You must install Dell OpenManage to manage and check the status of your raid controller.

Re: Input/output error

>> What do you mean after disk failure this happned,

One disk in a RAID 5 array failed.

>>> if disk got any problem then when we reboot it show some error right?

The disk should still be in failed status.

>> after reboot its normal, also i go through boot log its not showing anyting there.

If you do ls and you don't see any I/O errors, it does not mean that your data is still valid. In our case, oracle reported corrupted datafiles. Trying to copy the datafiles I/O errors where reported.

I don't know what kind of data do you have there but ensure that you are able to run a full backup.

Re: Input/output error

As I said previously, you must install "Dell OpenManage".
