[Linux-cluster] Failed gfs_grow causing corrupt volume



Trying to grow a 15TB file system to 20TB this morning, using RHEL4.4 I got an error and the grow failed.  The file system will
still mount but when accessed gives the following error and withdraws:

Jan 25 11:32:49 jrmedia-c kernel: GFS: fsid=alpha_cluster:wav.0: fatal: invalid metadata block

A gfs_fsck doesn't work either:

Does anyone know if this file system can be fixed, it'll take a long time to restore form the backup.


Cheers
