I have a SUSE Linux 10.2 server (kde 3.5.5) with hardware RAID configuration (2 hard drives, mirrored).
I want to run the equivalent of Windows CHKDSK on the Linux server and I read that FSCK is the utility I want to use. But I have also read that running CHKDSK on a physical (hardware) RAID system can actually corrupt and destroy the operating system installation. Obviously I would like to avoid this.
Is there a way to run fsck (or another linux utility) that can check the surface of my hard drives without destroying the installation? I would prefer to not have to bring the server offline but will if I have to.
