RE: Red Hat 4 ES File System Crashed!



I can confirm that. I've had an RH system running from the same system disk since 2001 (updated the OS but still the same hard drive) and as it is an ordinary IDE drive and running at home I had no RAID (never had the need) nor an UPS (didn't need that one either). Some occasional power outages did nothing to the ext3 journaling system. When booted the system could run some checks and made some internal repairs but never, not once, did it fail. That is up until last week - when the hard drive crashed. The ext3 was still there and it tried to kick in - there were just too many errors for it to recover. And a few failed boot attempts later the drive died completely - even the MBR was gone...

File systems just don't get corrupted; with journaling, it usually takes something pretty catastrophic in order to corrupt the file system; most common thing is that a hard disk failed....

Hello there,
My server with Redhat 4ES crashed, the reason I was told by the company who maintains it is file system got crashed. I want to know how does the file system crash? What are the various reasons? I have got updates from RHN on the system until 17th Feb 2006 and it failed yesterday early morning...
I would appreciate if some one can tell me the reasons for these things...
Thanks in advance
Rajiv
