vCenter 6 Virtual Appliance and e2fsck and Superblock Errors

Last Modified: 2016-07-25
In our test lab we are using VMware  Essentials with the vCenter 6 appliance. When I boot the appliance it states I need to run fsck on my volume. I have followed the Vmware KB’s on this but not having any luck. I see a message stating that the /var file system cannot be found and believe this is on /dev/sda2. When I try to run e2fsck on this volume it states it has invalid Superblocks and does not repair / clean the volume?

Any thoughts or suggestions?
