Forcing restart with scrolling error ?


I have an error when I log out as a user.

Can anyone give me an indicator what this means? it happens overnight, the server drops off the network and when I log out as a user to log back in as root this happens.

EXT-3-F5 error (Device DM-0) in start transaction: Journal has aborted

This gives me two problems

1- the error repeats and scrolls down the screen and effectively blocks me out the system as there is nothing I can do to stop it and log back in, tried everything and only turning the server off and restarting is the only way.



2- What is causing the error on DM-0 ?

I have been rooting aound desperately trying to find an answer to this, and found this in a Centos archive:

Quote:

" It's time to resurrect this thread from way back in June. The
problem in the subject line has reared its ugly head again, but this
time with a twist that makes it much worse. A little refresher on
what was happening back then. Every so often the root file system
would be remounted read-only, with the error in the subject line
appearing over and over again on the console.

Lately, this has been happening every 10-14 days, and I would have to
reboot my system. Since the root file system was not writable, no
error messages were logged in /var/log/messages. So I configured
syslog to write messages to another system as well, and this time I
have captured some errors (see below). BTW, this is a SATA drive.

What makes it much worse this time, is that the system won't boot!
When I try to boot now I get the following error over and over again:"

This quite frankly is scaring the life out of me. This is my first time with a Linux server, and this seems to be a serious problem?

thanx in advance

This morning the server had dropped off the network, and was totally unresponsive so I rebooted.
Looking at the logs overnight there was a problem at 4.02 this morning with the following system log:
Oct 27 01:07:19 localhost kernel: backup: 0,488134944,61016867,3072 (my backup worked ok without errors)
Oct 27 04:02:13 localhost nmbd[3578]: [2006/10/27 04:02:13, 0] nmbd/nmbd.crocess(542)
Oct 27 04:02:13 localhost nmbd[3578]: Got SIGHUP dumping debug info.
Oct 27 04:02:13 localhost nmbd[3578]: [2006/10/27 04:02:13, 0] nmbd/nmbd_workgroupdb.c:dump_workgroups(284)
Oct 27 04:02:13 localhost nmbd[3578]: dump_workgroups()
Oct 27 04:02:13 localhost nmbd[3578]: dump workgroup on subnet xx.x.x.xxx: netmask= 255.255.255.0:

appreciate any help here. what does this mean ?

Sorry to bump this one, but is there anyone that can throw a bit of light on this. I am completely stumped what is causing this error. Should I re load afresh or is this Platfrorm not suitable for our system?

Am I asking a daft question as a newbie? Just a pointer?
