Override Filesystem Check


command executed,

mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/sdx1



Error thrown,

This filesystem will be automatically checked every 22 mounts or 180 days, whichever comes first. Use tune2fs -c or -i to override.

How to override.

How to override.
  1. That isn't an error, that's information.
  2. Did you bother to read the part of the line, that TELLS YOU how to override it?? I bolded it above, so try doing what the system suggests.
  3. You REALLY don't want to override that. It's there for a reason, and will help keep your system running well.
And you don't provide ANY details (version/distro of Linux, WHY you want to override it, etc.)

I am using 2.6.32-279.el6.i686 kernel of CentOS release 6.3 (Final)(ext3 only).
I tried tune2fs -c or -i to override, but not happening. I really want to override for my upcoming project.

Just saying "not happening", tells us nothing. WHAT did you type in, and what did you expect it to do?? All that command does is set the parameters to be different than what they are. Did you try reading the man page on that command??

And again, THIS IS A BAD THING, and there is NO REASON to do it. WHY do you want to override this for your 'project', and what is your project?? Why would this matter? Again, unless you reboot 22 times in a row, or have your system up for more than six months before rebooting, you'll not see this come up at all. And AGAIN...when it DOES check the file system, it's doing it FOR A REASON.

Thank you Very much for supporting me, I got the solution.

1. sudo tune2fs -c 30 -i 3m /dev/sdxx

tune2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
Setting maximal mount count to 30
Setting interval between checks to 7776000 seconds

2. sudo tune2fs -i 0 /dev/sdxx

tune2fs 1.40.8 (13-Mar-2008)
Setting interval between checks to 0 seconds

Yes, reading the man pages is always a good idea first. And again, what you have done is a BAD THING, and there is NO REASON TO DO IT.
