File system read only issue


Hi,
Due to what reasons the root filesystem goes into read only (ro) mode from read write (rw) mode.

Thanks

Is this the only reason that filesystem goes into read only mode?

Thanks

Have a look at 'dmesg' output. Maybe you can get some useful info from it.

Below errors are few symptoms for FS Read-Only mode.

1.) Bad HD/ HD host bus issue
2.) File System issue/bugs
3.) Improper HCL results HD malfunction.
4.) spike busters and surges creating issue for HD also which result in FS crash

This issue is major into production env.
