EXT3-fs error - Freeing blocks not in datazone



Hello,

* One of our servers experienced a file system corruption and gave this error in the /var/log/messages file.

{code}

* The file system then went into read only mode

* We tried to unmount and then remount the file system,but on trying to unmount the server simply hung and we had to restart the machine

* Fsck found errors on the file system and fixed it

* This filesystem is on a raid partition (RAID 1) and the physical and virtual disk caches are turned on.

* Even the barrier option for this file system was on to prevent any corruption of the data in case of a sudden reset

* Can some one please point to me what is that went wrong exactly and how we can avoid this in the future

Regards,
Muhammed Sameer
