PHDVBA contains a file system with errors, check forced

SUMMARY

PHDVBA contains a file system with errors, check forced

ISSUE

If a PHD VBA fails to start and a file system error is displayed in the VBA's hypervisor client console, you can reboot the VBA and run a file system check (fsck) to correct the problem.

An example file system error is displayed, below:

fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
PHDVBA contains a file system with errors, check forced.
init: ex-linux-distribution main process (574) terminated with status 127
init: ex-linux distribution main process (633) terminated with status 127
PHDVBA: Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

To run a file system check to repair PHD VBA errors

  1. When a file system error is encountered, first restart the PHD VBA manually (from the hypervisor client, select the VBA virtual machine and click restart).
  2. When the VBA restarts, the following message is displayed:
    PHDVBA: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
    (i.e., without -a or -p options) 
    mountall: fsck / [324] terminated with status 4 
    mountall: Filesystem has errors: / 
  3. At this point, type mA root prompt is displayed.
  4. Next, type fsck followed by Enter.
  5. At each prompt thereafter, type to continue the process.
  6. When complete, restart the PHD VBA again.
