Re: root file system corruption

Hi,

try to do an fsck using recovery DVD/Ignite backup.

If not working , restore the backup.

Ack!, how did you do this?
You can't remove the directory, only the content. Otherwise you have to use mklost+found(1M).

But you now may be stuck. :-(

Re: root file system corruption

Can you do further more housekeep and reduce the root file system? Then try to do fsck again, may be with "-o full" option.


If still not working, then you may have to restore from ignite.

Re: root file system corruption

Typically as you know root logical volume extents are contiguous and hence you cannot extend the size of the root file system. Looking at the nature of the problem it seems that you can run fsck with the different levels of intent logs option. Possibly this one,
fsck -F vxfs -o full,nolog /
Instead of replaying the intent log, now the fsck will scrutinize the file system in every way , each file system one by one.

Hope this helps you out,
