Hi,

What may cause metadata becomes bad? I got xfs_force_shutdown with 0x2
parameter.

Software bugs or hardware problems. If you provide the actual kernel message we can offer more info on what xfs saw and why it shut down.

How can I analyze the metadata dump file?

the metadump file is just the metadata skeleton of the filesystem; you can mount it, repair it, point xfs_db at it to debug it, etc.
