The LMFS for our file server started wierding out and finally bit the dust.
First i started getting messages like:
File damaged, check words do not match
Expected: 12526520651 1664 ...
Actual: 0 0 ... 0
Cannot read record #o74132 of partition 4
All of these messages were from files in the same partition (fep1:>lmfs4.file.1),
so i ran the salvager (over the entire lmfs so it had a chance to fix what it could),
but the salvager output (1,300 blocks worth) indicated to me that it wasn't able to do much.
The next day I had to shut down all our machines because the AC went down.
When I rebooted the file server (and tried to access lmfs) it
replied with a LMFS-BAD-PARTITION-LABEL error
Error: Bad label version on file partition fep0:>lmfs1.file.1
(from stack frame of LMFS:ensure-lmfs-up)
please note: a DIFFERENT partition (and a different disk drive) is gonzo here!
1. What can I do (short of reinitializing LMFS with new partitions (losing the old ones)) and
hoping my latest complete backup tape (Exabyte 1.5 gigabyte) will restore?
2. Does this sound like a disk hardware failure?
It sounds like some kind of hardware problem. The one curious thing,
though, is that after rebooting you got a complaint about a partition on
a different disk. Perhaps the problem is with your I/O board.
