ext2 partition SCSI RAID
Posted on 2003-11-13
Installed ITE IT8212X SCSI RAID mirror on Linux Redhat 9.0.
Keep getting this sort of error message:
kernel: EXT2-fs error (device sd(8,1)): ext2_new_block: Free blocks count corrupted for block group 2
Searching Google there are some discussions about this error message meaning that the SCSI card may be flakey or that the ext2fs may need upgrading and that serious corruption can occur. But others say it is not that serious and could be fixed by running e2fsck etc.
I have also noticed that the partition type was set to 'HPFS/NTFS' during install rather than 'Linux' or 'Linux Extended'. Could this be the cause of the problem? Is it possible to change the partition type at reboot?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am getting a bit sick of rebooting and worrying about corruption!
