fsck and reboot on FC4!


I setup a server with FC4 recently. I experienced my first power cut off. Then system restart automatically. Since the shutdown was not a normal one, When Fedora OS restart, it starts a disk check and then ask to log as root to run fsck. So if I'm not there, System cannot start and get stuck to this prompt.

Since I'm not always in front of the server, I would like to avoid this situation. How can I do? I didn't experience this with RedHat 7, 8 or 9.

The best thing you can do is get UPS Backup for emergencies.
If your not in front of the server, the only way you could get around this to talk someone else through it, that is there
or take a cab to the server. I'm not trying to be funny just realistic.
If I was trying to be funny I would tell you to get a Robot for emergencies like this, But a UPS backup would be cheaper.
Anyone that loves their server would get them a UPS backup.

Thanks, I know this option but I would like to know if it's possible to change configuration to avoid this kind of problem. For example, if you have a power cut off of 15' and the usb backup can handle only 10' and if you are in vacation for 2 or 3 weeks. How do you do?

Somebody experience what happen to me already? How they treat it?
