unclean shutdown causes "Couldn't find matching filesystem: label=" error
Here's what happened: Have a rack mount dell 2850 server running Redhat Enterprise Linux 3 AS and the power cables from our server accidently got caught and came out while I was pulling the server out of the rack to obtain some information on a sticker on the side of the server. So it was an unclean shutdown, so when I tried to power the system up, I get the message "Couldn't find matching filesystem: label=/u01" and I'm forced into a recovery mode. So, I edited the /etc/fstab file and commented out the label /u01 that is related in the error message. Okay then I could boot up without the error. I ran e2fsck and it checked out clean. But I still got the error when I would try to boot with that label in the fstab file. I tried restoring every backup superblock, but the error still persisted. So I ran the tune2fs -l and reset the label to the same name /u01. Okay, now that let me boot without errors, however, all of the data that I originally had is unavailable. /u01 is a label for /dev/sdb1. And my mount point is also /u01. If I unmount /u01 I can still get to the data and I have made a copy of it. But the data is not there if I mount /u01. This is an ext3 filesystem running hardware controlled RAID. I have run a consistency check on the RAID and no problems were found. Has anyone ever had this problem? Can anyone give me suggestions on how to fix this?
