File-system problems in a Dedicated Server,
We recently rented a dedicated server that runs CentOS 5.0,
We are occasionally experiencing downtime because of CentOS switching the file system into read only mode.
When i login to the server via ssh while the file system is mounted read only, most of the commands result in the following output.
I/O Error, Read-Only file system,
In those circumstance we just restart the server and it would work fine.
So we thought to replace the disk,
Is that correct?
Is there any other reasons for this problem to appear?
If the disk should be the culprit, how shall we proceed to clone it in the new drive?
We have access to KVM/IP,
The drive is in LVM configuration, has only single drive.
500 GB capacity . but 2% only used.
No Live CD option,
Please let me know the best way to proceed in the situation.
I am new to server administration.

Reason: Replaced RAID with LVM, because RAID is wrong
