sorry for the HTML mail. My normal mail account isn't allowed to send mail to
my provider got somehow onto a spam list. I had to revert to GMX and only
how to send plain text mails via GMX. I hope that that works now.
The system is now down, therefore some of the details you requested are only
from my memory.
The version of xfstools is the one I got with the command "git clone
sunday or monday this week.
The story is as follows: my backup file system is on a Raid6 (mdadm), on top of
that lvm2 and xfs.
One of the HDs reported smart errors, I replaced it with a new one. During the
I got a kernel panic. After reset the raid didn't come up. I finally started it
with the '--force'
parameter. After that the filesystem didn't mount. I issued the 'xfs_repair -L
...' from the
current distribution, Debian 7 amd64. During the repair process the command
stalled for more than
24 hours. After that I got nervous and restarted the machine.
Then I downloaded the git xfstools version and compiled it. Now I get
repeatedly the error from
my first mail.
Two more drives failed, I'm now back to a system without any retundancy. I will
only power it up
again when I have two new replacement drives (already ordered).
Kind regards, Hans
