Server is hanging for hours.
I tried to use LiveCD to mount the booting HDD and to disable quotas from /etc/fstab, but I cannot mount it.
I get an error saying that the device is busy, but nothing is using it.

In fact I use raid filesystem because I have 2 HDDs in software raid.

How can I skip the quota check?
I cannot boot it.

After booting using the LiveCD execute the command
fdisk -l

This should display you the list of disk partitions the system can determine. Show me the output of the command.

Hi!

Maybe a hard drive crash?

Hi all and thanks for replies.

I managed to boot from live cd, and mounted the HDDs.

Because they are in RAID, i mounted /dev/md1.
I edited the etc/fstab file from MD1 and deled user quota checking.

Now it's booting normally.

Thanks.
