This morning I saw this in the logfile:
Mar 15 09:30:39 raman kernel: xfs_force_shutdown(sd(8,18),0x8) called from line
4079 of file xfs_bmap.c. Return address = 0xf89692a2
Mar 15 09:30:39 raman kernel: Corruption of in-memory data detected. Shutting
down filesystem: sd(8,18)
Mar 15 09:30:39 raman kernel: Please umount the filesystem, and rectify the
After reading the FAQ and the mailing list archive it seems that a
simple umount and mount could slove the problem. But:
Mar 15 10:21:40 raman kernel: XFS: bad magic number
Mar 15 10:21:40 raman kernel: XFS: SB validate failed
The primary superblock was corrupted. Running xfs_repair produced some
files in lost+found and the message that sunit and swidth are being
resetted and should be specified in the mount options.
I haven't used these options for mkfs.xfs so I did not specify them when
mounting the repaired filesystem. The mount worked and the filesystem
looks godd at a first glance (execpt for the file in lost+found...).
Are we still able to use that filesystem?
Kernel is 2.4.17 from CVS compiled on Jan 4th, filesystem is on an
external HW-RAID which does not report errors.
