syslogd kernel: EXT3-fs error
Posted on 2007-04-06
I recently inherited a server that has been routinely generating the following syslog entry:
kernel: EXT3-fs error (device md(9,3)): ext3_free_blocks: Freeing blocks not in datazone - block = 6521216, count = 1
I've done a little research and some sources recommend running an fsck. Does anyone else have recommendations for this? This system has a RAID. Does that affect how I need to run fsck? Can fsck be run on the server if it's in production with no worries? The previous owner is unavailable for advice or history.
Thanks in advance.
