"it's showing 6 months" isn't particularly helpful, which section of the output is showing "it" as 6 months?

Actually in tune4fs -l <fs>, "Check interval" shows 6 months where the boot messages on the screen shows "has gone 254 days without being checked, check forced" after clearing the orphan inodes as the system was rebooted for fsck

When was the server last rebooted?

The "check interval" is how long to go between checks, it's not the actual interval since the last check.

And I hope you haven't misunderstood my question when I asked when was the server last rebooted?

Yes, so you keep saying, which to me, means that your server hadn't been rebooted for 254 days, so when it WAS rebooted it was over 6 months so fsck ran.

The server was manually rebooted 16 days back & fsck ran sucessfully but why there's a mismatch in fsck execution interval ?
