mount error 6 mounting ext3
I was attempting to backup my Dell 2950 running RHEL 4 when the Acronis software told me that there were disk errors and that I should run a scan on the disk and fix the errors before proceeding.
At a terminal I ran e2fsck -C fd /dev/sda2 which found muliple errors that I said yes to fix. When I rebooted the box it came up with multiple errors indicating that VolGroup_ID_9383 volume metadata is inconsistant and Volume group for uuid not found.
At the end of the errors was this:
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2
Kernal panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
The box will not boot past that point.
Can this be fixed or have I hosed the OS?
If you know how to fix please be detailed as I am a noob.
