I do always facing with this problem which for me a major problem. After a succesfull install and the server go to production mode. Suddenly i recieve this problem:

1- What ever I type on the command will appear this:
who command> -bash: /usr/bin/who: Input/output error
ps -ef command> -bash: /usr/bin/w: Input/output error

What cause this error and how to fix and prevent it? Normaly i will have to restart the server.

Apparently:

There seems to be a bug in XFS with some configurations of 2.6.9 and
2.6.10-rc series.

Run the xfs_repair on it and that should resolve the situation (obviously make sure that backups are up to date!)

So - rebooting works as the filesystem gets checked during the boot process.
Recommendation is change the version of XFS you use, or switch to ext3 or something else.
