You can safely run fsck when the disk partition is unmounted. Using SSH to connect to the remote server:

umount /dev/sdaXX
fsck /dev/sdaXX
mount /dev/sdaXX

A reboot is unavoidable if you want fsck to run on all partitions or mounted partitions that cannot be unmounted.

To do this:

shutdown -rF now
