Question how to avoid force check of root filesystem while booting RHEL

hi friends

I want to know how to bypass force check of root filesystem while booting RHEL

If the computer gets shutdown abnormally then when the computer boots next time root file system was forcebly checked. Hence we have to give root password for maintenance and run fsck manually which is time consuming

Is it possible to avoid this by edting rc.sysinit or by some other means?

It shouldn't ask for root password for maintenance unless something is actually wrong. So that can't be skipped no, if everything is fine with the force file system check it will just continue to boot normally.
