Accessing a file hangs the accessing process



Hi

System: Dell PowerEdge Dual Processor
O/S: Redhat 7.3 + most patches
Kernel: RH compiled 2.4.18-19.7.xsmp

Not sure whether this is an ext3 problem or not, but I've not seen this on other RH systems.

There is a particular file on an ext3 filesystem that hangs whichever process tries to access it, i.e. an attempt to cp it will hang the cp. the process is unkillable, and a reboot is the only way of getting rid of it.

Is it possible that the file system is corrupted? If so how to get rid of it?

e2fsck -f finds nothing wrong.

Andy ideas?

TIA
