Dear Ext3 Users,


We are running RHEL 4 AS (2.6.9-67.ELsmp ) on a Sun X4200 M2 machine with 2 146GB disks in RAID1.


For no aparently reason, a ext3 filesystem has an error and remounts in read-only.


=> /var/log/messages

Jan 21 22:34:32 SPJAG01-SM02 kernel: EXT3-fs error (device sda8): ext3_journal_start_sb: Detected aborted journal
Jan 21 22:34:32 SPJAG01-SM02 kernel: Remounting filesystem read-only


I've checked the RedHat bug 323921 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=213921) and saw that it could cause this problem and that it was fixed on kernel versions 2.6.9-42.0.7.EL and later.


Does anyone know if there is another RedHat bug that could cause such problem? Or another reason that is not hardware problem (Sun tech support said that there is no hardware problem)?


Thank you for your attention.
