/opt Filesystem Currupt And Darn it, It Will Not Clean

Greetings Chaps, just some general advice here please.

 

We have a 900/800/A500-7X (a relic, I know) server running HPUX11.23

 

The /dev/vg00/lvol7 /opt filesystem is corrupt.  It will not mount and even though a fsck runs on it, it still will not mount.  The machine only has console access.  There are some nasty looking vx_metaioerr errors that are in syslog.log after bootup.

 

There are no disk errors in cstm, syslog.log or event_log.  The disk is online and claimed.

 

The actual /dev/vg00/lvol7 LV shows as available/synced.

 

This server only has one root disk and the disk is online.  There are no stale extents anywhere in any LVs.

 

But /opt will still not mount.  Anyone come across something similar to this before?

 

I’ve attached a couple of console screen shots.opt corruption.JPG

fsck has been ran on /opt but the filesystem will still not mount.  If you do a 'mountall' it will not mount.fsck check.JPG

Re: /opt Filesystem corrupt and it will fsck

Looks like you have I/O errors on it.  Time to get out your backups.

You might be able to mount it read only to get some files off.

Hmm, thanks Dennis.

 

Did a restore from backup.  The machien stayed up for a few days then crashed again.  We replaced the harddisk and did a further UNIX backup restore and so far so good, the machine is OK.
