Hi All,

If filesystem was created with manually-specified geometry, using
auto-discovered superblock may result in irrecoverable damage to
filesystem and user data.
 
 
CANCEL FILESYSTEM CHECK? y
 
 
Please verify that the indicated block contains a proper
superblock for the filesystem (see fsdb(1M)).
root@SVR #

When we try to run the fsck it prompts to look for the superblocks using either MKFS or NEWFS, According to the oracle documentation, we need to select it correctly depending on the system. But we do not know from which command the file system is created. so with the warning given, we want get an advise on the best possible way to proceed for the file system repair.

Kindly advise on best possible way to proceed.


Thank You

Hi All,

None of the recovery methods work for my issue. So we have done a fresh installation of the system

Thank You all for your suggestions

Regards,
Buddhike G
