Xfs Help, centos 6.5

Post by rxkmir » 2017/12/28 17:35:14

Story: I have a SAN with a 44 tb partition, one disk went bad and I had to change it, I've successfully changed that bad drive and rebuilt my VD. Logging in to Centos I got the error kernel:xfs_log_force error 5 returned. I've done xfs_check and xfs_repair ( -L -p) and yet it doesn't fix the problem, I've also tried to look at different forums but nothing helped. I can only mount my VD for a short time, is there any way I can repair my xfs file system as it contains backups? I would be glad to post anything here that can be of help in troubleshooting this issue.

Best regards,

They say 'xfs_log_force: error -5 returned' indicates an IO error. It's a hardware problem, nothing you can cure with software.

However 6.5 is years out of date and you are missing all security updates since it came out in December 2013! 4 years worth and some of those are really serious. There are also numerous fixes that have been made to xfs in later kernels.

yum update
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
