How can I prevent my box from automatically forcing fsck after the default number of


How can I prevent my box from automatically forcing fsck after the default number of day have elapsed(which I believe is 65)?

I have a large raid 50 array and if I reboot it it means 6 hours of down time while fsck is running.

Is there a way to get it to not force fsck?

What does the last column mean? What possible values other than 2 and 0 are there?

What does the second to last column mean?
