Redhat EL5 won't boot after adding EXT3 volume via iSCSI
Posted on 2009-04-20
I installed iscsi_initiator, connected to my SAN, and then added a 600GB ext3 file system to a Redhat Enterprise 5 server. Now when rebooting the iSCSI volume has not been connected and i receive the error "fsck.ext3 no such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ds_storage"
If i boot the kernel with the emergency switch i can get to a command prompt but since the file system is read only i cannot make any changes to fstab. What would be the proper way of getting this back online as well as connecting the iSCSI storage prior to mounting the FS? Also, should i have created some other type of file system?
