Updating Suse Linux 11 to Suse Linux SP2 using ISO image

Create a directory to mount the ISO image and then mount it

suse11:/var/tmp # mkdir /root/iso

suse11:/var/tmp # mount -o loop /var/tmp/SLES-11-SP2-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1.iso /root/iso/

suse11:/var/tmp # df -h /root/iso
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/loop0 3.1G 3.1G 0 100% /root/iso

Add the directory as a new repository. In the example below, I’m calling my repository Suse11SP2

suse11:/var/tmp # zypper ar /root/iso/ Suse11SP2

Linux EXT4-fs: error (device dm-156): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 1091357

Checking which device is complaining. dm-156 is /dev/vgWPJ/lv_orawp0

root@serviceguardnode2:/dev/mapper # ls -l | grep 156
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 9 Dec 14 22:15 vgWPJ-lv_orawp0 -> ../dm-156

The filesystem is currently mounted

root@serviceguardnode2:/dev/mapper # mount | grep lv_orawp0
/dev/mapper/vgWPJ-lv_orawp0 on /oracle/WPJ type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,data_err=abort,barrier=0)

And the logical volume is open

root@serviceguardnode2:~ # lvs vgWPJ

lv_ora11264 vgWPJ -wi-ao—- 30.00g
lv_orawp0 vgWPJ -wi-ao—- 5.00g

This is a clustered environment and it is currently running on the other node

root@serviceguardnode2:/dev/mapper # cmviewcl | grep -i wpj
dbWPJ up running enabled serviceguardnode1

There is a Red Hat note referencing the error – “ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced” errors in /var/log/messages in RHEL 6.

In clustered environments, which is the case, if the other node is mounting the filesystem, it will throw these errors in /var/log/messages

root@serviceguardnode2:~ # cmviewcl -v -p dbWPJ

dbWPJ up running enabled serviceguardnode1

Check if you have NFS shares mounted

I have this share that the server was turned off. So I tried to umount the share

root@linux:~ # umount /dump
umount.nfs: /dump: device is busy
umount.nfs: /dump: device is busy

And even forcing but no luck

root@linux:~ # umount -f /dump

umount.nfs: /dump: device is busy

umount with -l to do a lazy unmount

ORA-00206: error in writing (block 42, # blocks 1) of control file

DBA notified me of this error

Umount the filesystem

root@linux:~ # umount /usr/oradata/orarvt015

I ran fsck

root@linux:~ # fsck -t ext3 /dev/mapper/oradatavg-dat.orarvt015new
fsck 1.38 (30-Jun-2005)

Then I mounted the filesystem again

root@linux:~ # mount /usr/oradata/orarvt015

Showing filesystem size

root@linux:~ # df -h /usr/oradata/orarvt015

It solved the problem

Exporting directory using NFS on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 and mounting on other server

I will mount a filesystem called /export/mnt/HD0/global and /export/mnt/HD0/profile being exported on linux01.

Both servers are running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7

Checking filesystem that will be exported

root@linux01:~ # df -h /mnt/HD0/global
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
3.5G 23M 3.3G 1% /mnt/HD0/global

root@linux01:~ # df -h /mnt/HD0/profile
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
3.5G 3.0M 3.3G 1% /mnt/HD0/profile

Checking which filesystems are being exported from linux01

root@linux02:~ # showmount -e linux01
Export list for linux01:

Edit file /etc/exports on linux01 to export the share to linux02

root@linux01:~ # vi /etc/exports

/export/mnt/HD0/exe linux01(rw,no_root_squash,sync)

I stopped and started NFS

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
