Couldn’t mount AIX file system. First information says that media is not formatted

I had a problem mounting a file system after the server rebooted. At first it reported that the logical volume wasn’t formatted or the format is incorrect. Then it asked to run fsck.

root@aix5:/ # mount /fallback
Replaying log for /dev/fallback.
mount: 0506-324 Cannot mount /dev/fallback on /fallback: The media is not formatted or the format is not correct.
0506-342 The superblock on /dev/fallback is dirty.  Run a full fsck to fix.

I just ran fsck on the logical volume and then mounted the file system.

root@aix5:/ # fsck /dev/fallback

The current volume is: /dev/fallback
