Hello, thanks for reading.
We have a custom Debian 3.1 image with PHP and MySQL and whatnot pre-setup for installation onto new servers as we need them. This issue is new to our eyes, but it may have been there all along...
When booting, the scrolling messages that pass include the lines:
Error mounting /dev/sda4
* Mounting local filesystems failed with error code 96.
This ext3 partition should mount on /var and when the server is up and running fine, it is indeed mounted right there on /var. So the mount is successful after all, but the error is present at every boot.
I ran fsck from a LiveCD and there were no errors. The original server (from which this install image was made) does not have these errors. A second server installation (different hardware, same image) still does have these errors.
Does any one know what may be causing this error, and ways in which I can attempt to fix it?
