Re: ext3 partition problems w/Apple Xserve RAID



Hi there,

I'm running the same kind of configuration (RHEL ES 4 on a PowerEdge 2950 with a QLE2460 connected to a SanBox 5200 with 2 XServe RAID 10.5TB). The four 4.5TB slices are directly formated in ext3, no partitions were created.

Should I expect to get some data corruption on power failure ?

Thanks,
Ionel

When the system power drops or it’s rebooted, the file system can’t be mounted again. It looks like the partition table is getting corrupted. Here is some of the doc I gathered:

Disk geometry for /dev/sdb: 0.000-4292376.000 megabytes

Disk label type: msdos

Bingo. That's your problem. You have to use a gpt disk label
for partitions this large. I had the identical problem
and I was able to fix it without loosing a single bit.
I described it in a posting to this group on 3/14/2007.
(I'll send it to you directly).

Cordially,
