I want to rsync two servers via rsync (2.5.5) but doing this will end in
an broken xfs-filesystem...
well, the setup is on both server:
- kernel 2.4.18 with the latest xfs-patch from the xfs-website
- rsync 2.5.5 running with the option -avz
The rsync-destionation is an xfs-partition the source an
reiserfs-partition and rsync is controlled by a script which starts the run.
If the script is executed rsync starts to work just fine but after a few
minutes an some MB later suddenly rsync complains about Input/output
error. If I go no to the destination-dir and do a ls -l the filesystem
seams to be empty but an df says that there are data in the filesystem -
the filesystem is broken.
If I do now an xfs_repair I get a lot of problems reported but at the
end it looks like that the filesystem is still broken because if I start
rsync again I get the Input/output-errors just from the start.
I have just tried again with an fresh formated xfs filesystem and the
problem is still there. If I do now an xfs_repair I get this message
(which I have not seen befor)
Phase 1 - find and verify superblock...
Phase 2 - using internal log
- zero log...
ERROR: The filesystem has valuable metadata changes in a log which needs to
be replayed. Mount the filesystem to replay the log, and unmount it before
re-running xfs_repair. If you are unable to mount the filesystem, then use
the -L option to destroy the log and attempt a repair.
Note that destroying the log may cause corruption -- please attempt a mount
of the filesystem before doing this.
any ideas what is going wrong ?
If you need more infos please let me know !
