We have ES3.0 (Redhat) and it runs very well for the most part. It's used to host our database accounting application. I ran into some problems this AM (unusual). First of all, I couldn't get the tape to eject from the drive. Finally I decided to reboot the server and get it out then. While shutting down, I lost the X window and had a black screen with line after line of this:
"ext3-fs error (device sd(8, 5)) in start-transaction: Journal has aborted"
Like I said, line after line after line of that. I couldn't get the machine to respond so I tried getting a terminal window up with the F keys. When a terminal would open, after a moment, I would get:
"journal committ I/O error"
Finally it rebooted
Any ideas on what the two errors are caused by, or what they are referring to?
