INIT: cannot execture /sbin/getty after server reset (fsck)


Hi all!

Well a couple of days ago my server stopped responding, when I went to check on it, not even the keyboard was working, so I had ho hard reset it. After the startup of course I had to run fsck it did what it did and now I get the errors show in the image. I don't care if I have to set up Debian again, but I really need to get the files for my clients, the problem being the disk is encrypted with dm-crypt so plugging the hard drives to another station kinda not working.

Ideas?

Why shouldn't you be able to (use a Live CD and) 'cryptsetup luksOpen /[dev|.*whatever.*]/yourdevicename' elswhere?

Kind of forgot to mention that 2 drives are "joined" with LVM. does that chnage anything?

Generally speaking as long as you're using Linux software raid the kernel should be able to recognize the disks for what they are and direct user land to unpack each layer.

OK so I maned up and tried with the Ubuntu live CD It saw the two drives asked em for the password and then told me it cannot mount them, so I'm guessing VML2 is the problem here since both HDD were joined as one, and now both are recognized individually.

Any other ideas?

It's best to use rescue mode on the disk the distribution was installed from.

Without knowing what comes first (LVM or dm-crypt first?) and without any diagnostic output (dmnesg, fdisk -l, pvscan, vgscan, cryptsetup isLuks) it's hard to say more than "it depends" 10 days on.

Ok the rescue CD did rescue me, I can see al the files now, but is there a way to just upload all the server contants to an remote FTP?

BTW can the mysql DB's be saved as well? Since the services are unable to run, i would kind of need to do this via the file transfer I mentioned earlier.
