AFAIK fsck needs the partition to be mounted read-only, not unmounted. But I don't know how the network connection is affected from this. (I have only done this localy in runlevel 1).
I doubt that this will work in normal use, you will have to do that in runlevel 1. But as the OP states that he can't reboot the machine because it is a production machine I doubt that switching to runlevel 1 is an option.

You don't fiddle with production servers. The risks are far too high if this is mission critical.

Do the changes on your backup server first and test; next make that one the primary server and you can now do the exercise on the old primary.
