We are running the latest stable kernel 2.6.18 on RedHat Enterprise 4
When I create an xfs partition and assign it a size > 2GB, I get the
following errors during bootup:
Sep 21 15:44:06 ssimppi7 kernel: sda: sda1
Sep 21 15:44:06 ssimppi7 kernel: sda1: rw=0, want=7167993856,
Sep 21 15:44:06 ssimppi7 kernel: I/O error in filesystem ("sda1")
meta-data dev sda1 block 0x1ab3ee7ff ("xfs_read_buf") error 5 buf
Sep 21 15:43:51 ssimppi7 mount: mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock
If the partition size is < 2GB then everything works smoothly. The
filesystem mounts successfully.
I searched the archives but could not find anything that would help me
in debugging this issue.
I was wondering if anyone else has reported the same issue or if I am
missing a step or if this is a defect in the code or
Your response is greatly appreciated.
