Debian Server wont boot


Hi,
I had an issue with a LUN holding vmdk files for a couple of web servers. The LUN is now sorted, except one of the machines wont boot.

Normally when I boot I would see
Loading Linux
Loading Initial ramdisk
.....
then services start etc

On this server I get
2.332156 sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
2.332206 sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
2.332602 sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
INIT: Version 2.88 booting
Using makefile-style concurrent boot in run level S
INIT: Entering runlevelL 2
Using makefile-style concurrent boot in run level 2
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 (none) tty1


I then get to a login prompt, but rather than,
(hostname) Login :
I get
(none) Login:

I am unable to login as root, it just says incorrect login when I try.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Try to boot in single user mode, than change password for root

Hi madikk71,
Thanks for the suggestion, but I know the root password, it just wont accept it when it gets to that point.

When I run the machine from a snapshot of the LUN its fine but when I copy the files back to the live LUN I get the same issue. I am not sure why but I guess its something to do with VMware rather than Debian so I will mark as resolved.

If any one has any ideas on why it happens I would still be interested.

Cheers.
