Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS2 corruption/withdrawal/crash

Hi Wendell,

The fsck.gfs2 program should fix this kind of error, but there
are some known fsck bugs.  I've been working on a big fix for
fsck.gfs and fsck.gfs2 lately that solves many problems, and there
is a chance it will solve yours.  If you don't mind, perhaps you
can send me a copy of your file system metadata, and I will
run my latest-and-greatest against it to see if it will detect
and fix the problem.  Even if it doesn't, perhaps I can even adjust
my patch to fix your file system.

Regards,

Bob Peterson
