Re: FSCK Maintenance - no root password



I don't use software RAID, but I would probably want to do this in rescue mode off of disc 1. What RAID level are you using?

When I tried booting it into single user mode the server would still go to
maintenance mode.  I was able to get at it another way by  passing
"init=/bin/bash" which got me to a command prompt.  Then remounted the drive
with rw since it was in ro mode, and then changed the password.  Now I have
it in maintenance mode again, I just need to figure out how to do an fsck on
a raid system.  When I try fsck /dev/md0 I got a bad super block error and
to run e2fsck -b 8192 which gives me the same error message.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks.

configuration.


I would be very cautious about interrupting an fsck.  If you reboot your
machine and press a key to bring up the grub menu, then type 'e' to edit
that kernel entry, move to the kernel line, hit 'a' to append .. place an
's' at the end of the line and hit enter and then 'b' to boot you will boot
without the root password into single user mode.
