I run XFS on a software raid on Linux 2.6.19. When I invoke xfs_db in
read-only mode, I get:
# xfs_db -r /dev/md0
xfs_db: unexpected XFS SB magic number 0x00000000
xfs_db: read failed: Invalid argument
xfs_db: data size check failed
The system is still running, the filesystem seems to be fine (except for the
above): files are created, written, and deleted without any problem.
So, I have two questions:
* Is there a real problem, or might a quick reboot solve this?
* If there is a real problem with the file system: What steps do you recommend
to overcome this problem?
* How safe is it to run xfs_check and xfs_repair?
Thanks in advance!
P.S.: Sorry for cross-posting, I just figure that maybe the XFS users on
non-linux systems might have a hint or two for me ... ;-)
