Debian :: Fsck.ext3: Unable To Resolve 'UUID=theUUID'

Jun 24, 2011

Upon booting my LVM wheezy setup, I get

fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'UUID=theUUID'
where "theUUID" (without the quotes) is the UUID

I believe this is caused by me trying to get lvm to use the external /boot because when I had unmounted the external /boot, it was creating a /boot in root. So, I booted a live cd and mounted the external /boot where /boot in the root volume is supposed to be. Basically, I think the problem is that I need to make my /boot (which is the only ext3 partition in the entire system and I want it that way) "relate itself" to the lvm root so that it boots into the system. As mentioned earlier, in the live CD, I made the external /boot mount itself in the root's /boot but I don't know how to tell the system to do this on its own while booting without my assistance. I chrooted from the live cd which involved a lot of tedious stuff but basically the important stuff I did were:

grub-install /dev/sdb
update-grub
update-initramfs -u

P.S.I get the issue in the Subject of this topic by telling tune2fs to mark the external /boot, lvm / and /home partitions as "dirty."

Debian Hardware :: Boot Warning Fsck.ext4: Unable To Resolve UUIDs?

May 15, 2011

I have $ uname -a
Linux kub 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Mar 7 21:35:22 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Most of the time when I boot my PC I get an error about fsck.ext4: Unable to resolve... I don't know why it's happening.

The problem is happening with my external drive that has 3 partitions:
/dev/sdc1
/dev/sdc3
/dev/sdc2

About 90% of the time I boot I do get the error. Sometimes after getting the error I can login and the external drive (/dev/sdc) is already mounted:
$ df -H
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2 15G 8.0G 5.8G 58% /
tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /lib/init/rw
udev 1.9G 246k 1.9G 1% /dev
tmpfs 1.9G 738k 1.9G 1% /dev/shm
code....

The UUID's in the error file match the output of the command blkid. And the UID's of blkid match the fstab UUID's. I don't know what to do at this point.

General :: Recovering 1Tb Ext3 With Fsck.ext3?

May 20, 2011

I Tarred and GZipped most of the data on one 1Tb partition and stuck the archives on a second 1Tb partition on a separate disk. I then proceeded to format the first partition with NTFS (from Linux.) The only problem is that I completely forgot that I had a CD drive and formatted sdc1 instead of sdd1! I began doing a full NTFS format and after a minute or two I cancelled it and decided to do a quick format. I then realized my mistake. I managed to find a copy of the superblock and began trying to recover the disk. fsck -t ext3 recognized the partition as NTFS but I luckily didn't have fsck.ntfs installed so it didn't touch it. I managed to get it working with fsck.ext3 (with -b,-B and -y) fsck.ext3 didn't mind that it was an NTFS partition.

Roughly how long will this take? It's running from Knoppix within a virtual machine to a USB hard drive which is 100% full. Days? Being that for a few minutes I attempted a full format am I going to end up with a bunch of corrupted archives? If I do end up with file corruption can anyone recommend a way of recovering the data / sorting it out? Is it likely to be just a few old files that are corrupt (It's my understanding that filesystems like to keep files in the same area on the disk to minimize the amount of head travel.) This might just be wishful thinking but as the filesystem fills up will ext3 put the newer files towards the end of the disk? If so then I'm hoping that a full NTFS format starts at the beginning of the disk.

CentOS 5 :: EXT3 Drives With Schedule Of Full Forced FSCK

Jul 23, 2010

I am hosting a few customer servers now, all of which are virtual machines running on a CENTOS 5.x host. Each Centos host has a couple of extra drives. When I formatted them ext3 they automatically had a schedule of a full forced fsck after 6 months. Do I really need to do that check regularly? It results in a fairly large outage since my disks are each 1TB and there are up to three extra drives on each server. I try to reboot these servers every 6 months but this part adds a large amount of time to a routine reboot.

Debian :: Ext3-fs Unable To Load Using Custom Kernel?

Mar 11, 2010

I compiled a 2 custom kernels so far (many custom kernels just 2 that I have used) however, both of the kernels display an error message about EXT3-Fs and unable to load custom options even though all my partitions are ext4.

I have looked around and the only reason I find for those are that the file systems are corrupt beyond repair,However the problems always ments EXT3-fs is a ext3 file system problem and EXT4-fs is a ext4 file system poblem. Why is mine saying EXT3 and some times EXT2 when im using EXT4?

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Failes With "fsck.ext3: Error Too Many Open Files"?

Apr 12, 2010

After upgrading from opensuse 11.1 to 11.2 I get the following error messages while booting the system caused by the initial filesystem check routines:

ERROR: Couldn't open /dev/null (Too many open files)
ext2fs_check_if_mount: Too many open files while determining whether ... is mounted.
fsck.ext3: Too many open files while trying to open ...

I found a new version of the e2fsprogs at the OBS package claiming to fix this problem. But installing this new version did not solve my problem.

Here some information about the affected system:
Operating System:openSUSE 11.2 (i586)
Installed e2fsprogs:e2fsprogs-1.41.11-4.1.i586
Number of LVs:35 (all ext3)

I can only boot if I comment out some of the filesystems in my /etc/fstab. It seems that the number of filesystems must be less or equal 32.

Debian :: Unable To Run Executable File / Resolve This?

Jan 3, 2009

I am trying to run a file called MFSTOOL from mfstools.sourceforge.net

It its a program for backing up tivo images

when i drop into a shell account and go to the dir of the program then type mfstool
I get -bash: mfstool: command not found

now if I run it by typing ./mfstool

it will give me a list of options and switches for the program, but if i try to use the options and switches with ./mfstools it will just give me the switches and options again IE
Typed as ./mfstool backup -6 -o /tivofiles/images/sddvr40/3510/tivo.bak /dev/hdc/

I know the program works as I can boot with a live cd mount my /dev/hda1 and store files to the images dir, i think i am missing something in a config file to let this program run.

Ubuntu :: Adding A CD-ROM Drive - Unable To Find UUID

May 2, 2010

Just added a DVD drive to a machine which had no drive before. When I boot I get the error about being unable to find the root drive by its UUID. If I unplug the DVD drive it boots as normal.

I'm guessing the root drive is getting a new name i.e /dev/sda2 instead of sda1 and thus a new UUID. How can I add the drive and fix the UUID issue in grub?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Fsck Ext4?

Jan 24, 2011

Seems like I misplaced this topic. Should have been in general help. Sorry! Any moderator feel free to move this topic. As I was creating a swap partition, something went wrong and I ended creating a much bigger file which consumed all my empty space. Ubuntu stopped working and now I can't seem to fsck / mount my disk. Currently I'm on a live cd. fsck will give:

Code:
e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
fsck.ext4: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda2
Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?
However, the file system is not mounted.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot Due To Changed UUID In RAID Array

May 9, 2010

I'm running 64bit Lucid. I've recently had a severe problem with my softraid (5) array, and have had to recreate the array to fix it. However this now means that something is up with GRUB/initramfs, and booting times out while waiting for the root device (md0) to be ready. /boot is on a normal partition, not the raid array itself. A friend of mine has rebuilt my initramfs file with the new UUID, but now I get the message: 'Kernel panic not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (9,0)'.So my question is either how do I sort this error, OR how do I rebuild initramfs/grub in a way that will boot?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Dd Drive And Retain UUID And Mdadm Superblock

May 18, 2011

I have an mdadm linear array of 4 500GB drives. One of them had a few bad sectors, so I've dd'ed it to a new one (conv=noerror), and tried to start my array. Mdadm refuses, saying, "mdadm: /dev/md4 assembled from 3 drives - not enough to start the array."I had diffed different samples from different positions on the source and the mirror drive and confirmed they were identical. Checking the superblocks confirms three old drives still having their superblocks as expected, while the newly mirrored one has,

daniel@lnxsrv:~$ sudo mdadm --misc --examine /dev/sdf1
mdadm: No md superblock detected on /dev/sdf1.
- and,
daniel@lnxsrv:~$ sudo blkid /dev/sdf1

[code]....

As before. The mirror apparently has no uuid, but the original does. To confirm my sanity, I did,

daniel@lnxsrv:~$ sudo dd bs=1M count=50 if=/dev/sdc of=./sdc && sudo dd bs=1M count=50 if=/dev/sdd of=./sdd && sudo diff -s sdc sdd
50+0 records in

[code]...

How can the uuid not be the same when bit-for-bit from the very first byte of the drive, covering MFT etc., these two drives are identical according to diff?

Ubuntu :: Fsck Usr Fails And Unable To Repair?

Dec 2, 2010

I am travelling so would really appreciate a few tips that should hopefully get my pc running again. (I have internet access via a kiosk, and can burn a disk if necessary, but the smaller the download the better)I have a few ideas that with some help I should be able to fix the partition.1. Is there a simple way to use use grub, to mount all partitions read only and not to fsck them so I can logon in normal user and sudo and hopefully fix the parition?or 2. Download a small version of ubuntu or something that I can burn to CD (my machine cannot boot from usb) so that I can repair the machine.3. Download the ubuntu installer (alternative) and try and reinstall the necesary usr partition?

Debian :: How To Continue Booting Debian After Fsck Is Failed?

Dec 31, 2010

I have bunch of partitions on my Debian server installation, so I was experimenting with partitions and saw that is one partition fails fsck on booting time, system waits for root password or CTRL+D key combination. The problem is that my Debian machine is headless and I use only SSH to it. So if fsck fails, I can't to login to SSH (off course, because it is not loaded at this time). So I need to go with monitor and keyboard to machine and press CTRL+D.One option is to disable disk checking at startup by changing fstab file. I don't like this option. Is there any possibility to auto continue booting Debian machine ?

Debian :: Change The UUID Of A Partition?

May 9, 2011

I have, as I have in the past, copy/pasted a partition using gparted to get a working OS to another place.

I have always done this in the past to a different drive. Never paid much attention to the UUID.

This time I did it on the same drive. The partitions have the same UUID. This is not a good thing.

The copied OS boots and mounts fine as I edited the fstab to go by /dev/sdxy (where x is the drive and y the partition). My grub uses a custom menu using symbolic menu entries so it goes by the partition definition instead of UUID too.

I would really like to change the UUID on that partition.

Debian Installation :: How To Get UUID For Root In Grub CFG

Mar 15, 2015

I am running Wheezy as my main OS in the first drive in my desktop. I use the 2nd drive for data. I am trying to add another OS to multiboot. When I ran grub-update in Wheezy, I am getting device letter for the root device instead of UUID in grub.cfg, in the os-prober section. Like this

Code: Select allsearch --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 6ee49a8e-a619-49c7-9f66-51a5ca9a48cc
   linux /boot/vmlinuz-316-x86_64 root=/dev/sdb3
   initrd /boot/initramfs-316-x86_64.img

In the same file, UUID was used for the existing kernels.

Code: Select alllinux   /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-686-pae root=UUID=c2eecf02-d427-4f2e-9fd0-9db61256cbac ro  quiet
   echo   'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
   initrd   /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-4-686-pae

How can I get UUID instead of /dev/sdb3 for the 2nd OS?

Debian Configuration :: Hdd Dev Letters - UUID And Labels ?

Jun 30, 2011

I have a debian 6 system in my basement acting as a media server. Debian is on a separate HDD from the raid drives and there is one external drive. Under normal conditions the Debian HDD shows up as /dev/sdk and the external shows up as /dev/sdl, no problems here because I use UUID for mounting. The problem is sometimes this drive isn't picked up on restarts (its old and I think the issue is the power supply in the base of it, to be solved later) . This wouldn't be a problem but it some how shuffles the drive addresses and the Debian HDD becomes /dev/sde, this in turn messes up a script that does a weekly dd of that hard drive. I am only really worried about this for when I go on vacation and I wont be at home if the power goes out.

So, is there a way to address the entire hard drive (not just a partition) other than the dev file? Why did this change from Debian 5 to 6? I never had this problem before with 5.

In case you are wondering, I find it easier recover from an image rather than do a reinstall, then get all the updates and software, then put in all the backed up files.

edit:The kernel which panics is 2.6.38 (make oldconfig, all default answer from 2.5.32 config)Stock is 2.6.32 On 2.6.38 after boot with tweak, the command "uuid" looks good.

Debian Installation :: Why Does 8.2 Change UUID Of Swap Drive

Dec 14, 2015

Been doing some installations in a newly upgraded machine where I'm setting up two instances of 8.2 in slightly different configurations.Installing from netinst AMD64 DVD with firmware non-free. First installation goes smooth as then the second changes the UUID of the swap partition, meaning that the first then can't find it. To add insult to injury the second installation doesn't install GRUB in the MBR of the HDD.

Nothing different or special about the installation which is standard graphical with manual allocation of previously set up partitions. I don't touch the swap drive in the partitioner - just point to the correct partitions for / and /home as I want them. This is exactly as I've done before, many times.Setup asks me if I want to install GRUB in MBR and I answer "No" (because it would otherwise load in MBR of sda where I want it on sdb) then point to sdb in the next screen. Again really nothing different to what I've done dozens of times.
