LINUX Server not starting up. xfs filesystem problem?
i have an HP proliant server n i am new to linux
the problem i am facing is that when i start the system it turns ON normally but after the linux starting up options like when we select whether to start it normally or in failsafe mode
after selecting one option out of the two
it comes up with following messages on the screen and get stuck over there.

mounting root /dev/cciss/c1d0p2
Filesystem "cciss/c1d0p2": Disabling barriers, not supported by the underlying device
XFS mounting filesystem cciss/c1d0p2
cciss: cmd ffff8100cfc00000 has CHEK CONDITION sense key = 0x3
I/) error in file system ("cciss/c1d0p2") meta-data dev cciss/c1d0p2 block 0x4255e07

It looks like your XFS filesystem is corrupted. You can try fsck.xfs. I've never used XFS so I can't help you any further.

I sure hope you have a backup of this system... It looks like you may have to do a bare metal restore if the advice from Meson doesn't help.

how can i get to a prompt to write this fsck command??

It looks like it ran an fsck on it for you... I don't know what the stuff is about not being able to find the log head. I suggest you rename this thread, or start a new one, with "XFS: failed to find log head" in the title.
