General :: Resize2fs: Can't Read Next Inode While Trying To Resize

Jan 19, 2010

I'm currently in the process of remove a drive from an lvm. I am following this guide

[URL]

and to be honest I have also posted this question at [URL] but I have a fair amount of data at stake here and really need to make sure I'm acting safely. This is certainly not a place to button mash or guess.this is the 2nd drive that I am removing, the first one went off without a problem.However, I just received this error

Code:

resize2fs: Can't read next inode while trying to resize /dev/vg0/lvol0

and I'm not sure what it means or where to go from here. The entire output is

Code:

root@dude:/mnt# resize2fs -p /dev/vg0/lvol0 4466524456k
resize2fs 1.41.4 (27-Jan-2009)
Resizing the filesystem on /dev/vg0/lvol0 to 1116631114 (4k) blocks.

General :: Resize2fs Seems Stuck At Pass 3 (scanning Inode Table)?

Jun 16, 2011

I have a machine running Arch Linux (2010, I believe) with a 6TB RAID-5 array hooked up to a Highpoint RocketRaid 2320. I've been having issues with the RAID controller's drivers and the latest Linux kernels thanks to the driver not being open-source, and as a result I am migrating the system to Windows Server.Problem is that the 6TB disk originally was comprised only of an ext4 partition.I shrunk the partition down as much as I could, and added a NTFS partition in the empty space so I could start moving files. That went fine. Problem is that now I need to shrink the ext4 partition again, move files, shrink again, etc. The second run through resize2fs is taking way longer than the first pass.It seems to be getting stuck at pass 3:

[root@nar-shaddaa rc.d]# resize2fs -p /dev/sdb3 863000000
resize2fs 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
Resizing the filesystem on /dev/sdb3 to 863000000 (4k) blocks.

Ubuntu :: Resize2fs: "inode Is From A Bad Block In The Inode Table"?

Jul 9, 2010

I was using gparted from a live usb to resize an ext4 partition and it failed while running resize2fs. The error it gave was

Code:
resize2fs: The inode is from a bad block in the inode table while trying to resize /dev/sda5
please run 'e2fsck -fy /dev/sda5' to fix the filesystem after the aborted resize operation.

General :: EXT3 FS Error - Unable To Read Inode Block

Feb 8, 2011

I am using Wind River Linux- 2.6.27.18-WR3.0bg_standard. The problem is whenever I execute "reboot, ls, cd" and many other commands the OS prompts me an error-
"end request: i/o error, dev sda, sector "(different sector each time)" and
EXT3-fs error (device sda1):ext3_get_inode_loc:unable to read inode block- inode-4088001, block-4097027
I also executed "dmesg", it also showed similar errors. Has the disk gone bad or the kernel is corrupted?

Hardware :: "failed To Set Xfermode," / Getting Ext3 Errors About Failing To Read An Inode Block?

Aug 19, 2010

About a month and a half ago I purchased two new 500GB serial ATA hard drives from Best Buy to replace my other, very old 186GB SATA hard drive. Since then I've had issues with Linux. Sometimes when it's booting it gives a bunch of error messages, such as "failed to set xfermode," and then it boots. Other times, after INIT has started, I get ext3 errors about failing to read an inode block, then "cannot start /sbin/agetty" and "ID c5 respawning too fast," and at this point booting fails altogether. These errors seem to happen randomly. However, once the system has booted, everything seems to work fine, and there are no further issues.

I know it's not a faulty hard drive or filesystem because I've tried Linux on both hard drives numerous times, and I've reformatted many times, one time I even tried erasing one of the hard drives byte for byte and then formatting it, and still had issues.

I've tried Arch Linux, Gentoo, VectorLinux, and openSUSE, and all of them have given me these problems. The live CD's for Ubuntu 10.04, Clonezilla, and GParted all have trouble partitioning/cloning/installing to these hard drives. At this point, it's obvious to me that there is a universal problem with this particular model.

GRUB and Syslinux both work fine, and Windows XP works fine too. It's only Linux that's giving me issues.

I would rather not buy a new hard drive if I can help it, seeing as these two are almost brand new. Is there some BIOS setting that could be causing these problems? Is it some unsupported feature in the hard drives? Is it a bug in the Linux kernel?

The hard drive model is WD5000AADS. Both hard drives are this same model. My motherboard is an NForce 680i SLI.

EDIT: I've tried ext2/3, ReiserFS, and XFS, and all of them do this, so I don't think it's a filesystem issue.

General :: Find Inode Of A Particular File Using Its Number?

Nov 16, 2010

Can we find the inode of a particular file using its inode number?

The reason is i want to know how many blocks are occupied by specific file.

if we consider block size of 1K.
if the file size is of 100 bytes. In such a case, when the file is
stored on disk, the file will occupy 100 bytes or 1K (since we have
choosen block size to be 1K) ?

General :: Loop Through A DIR To Delete Files By Inode

Feb 9, 2010

I have a directory that contains some files (over a 1,000) that have a '' in the filename. There are also some good files that I need to keep. therefore I need a script to delete based on inode.

What I have thus far:
list="$(ls -il /opt/PC/log/*RPOUT*.xml)" #this gives me the list
# I need to get the inode of.
for i in $list
do
find . -inum $i -exec rm -i {} ;
echo "delete file" $i >> /home/me/tmp/del_inode.txt
done
echo 'completed'

I know this is not right ... what I know is is the 'find' is. I need to loop through the $list gleaning inodes to get all the files with '' delete. I'm not sure how. The $i gives me the whole line. I just want the first position. set $() does not seem to work ...

General :: Remove A File On System Using Inode Number?

May 19, 2010

If you create a file on UNIX/linux with special chars, like touch "la*, you can't remove it with rm "la*. You have to use the inode number(you can if you add the before the name, I know, but you'd have to guess as a user that it was used in the file creation).

I checked the manpage for rm, but there's no metion of the inode number. Doing rm inodenumber doesn't work either.

What is the command for this?

General :: Disk Image Starting At Specific Inode?

Mar 9, 2010

I deleted some files on the command line and would like to learn if it's possible to recover them. It's not a terrible thing if they are gone, but I want to see what I can do. The server is configured as a hardware RAID5+1 (ext3, Debian Stable) and I *really* don't want to take a dd of the entire disk.

ls -id gets me the inode value of the directory(155655)

I'd like to create a disk image starting at that specific inode. Then there is the issue of picking an outer boundary of the disk image. I'm hoping there's a dd/ext3 genius out there to advise.

Software :: Resize2fs Beeing Stuck Cpu At 0%?

Aug 7, 2011

I needed to shrink a filesystem so I could take a drive out of a RAID5 array. I unmounted the fs, then ran e2fsck on it and it found 5.9% non contiguous files but no errors. Then I ran resize2fs -f /dev/whatever 1300G (initial size was 2500G, used space was at this time only 1136G). It started operating and after some hours I received a lot of messages on the output as mdadm started resync in the background. Now the resync is done but nothing moves. Here is the output I received in the terminal window where resize2fs was ran :

Code:

computer:/# e2fsck /dev/stold/storold
e2fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)
/dev/st/stor a �t� mont� 68 fois sans avoir �t� v�rifi�, v�rification forc�e.
Passe*1*: v�rification des i-noeuds, des blocs et des tailles

[code]....

I understand that it doesn't do nothing anymore, as it doesn't consume any CPU cycles anymore. What can I do now ? It's running near 24 hours now ! How can I try to escape from this situation without loosing all data ?

General :: Ext2-fs (sda1): Error: Ext2_Lookup: Deleted Inode Referenced 83359

Jul 18, 2011

1st. I lost my usb drives. Im using Puppy Studio(Lucid, Full HDD install, latest ver) on a Toshiba Satellite 2805-S201... My 1st Linux treasure... Anyway... I was recording audio thru audacity. Shutdown. L8r started and inserted a Flash drive and the icon never showed even though I used it hours prior with no issues. The drives are working fine meaning I can access the data on other devices. Now the newb... I cant find the USB info anywhere. i followed System-Status & Configure-Hardware info-Devices-USB devices and theres nothing there. The optical drive & sda1 are registered but the flash drives are not. Does it sound like my 2 USB ports are dead? My mouse & keyboard dont register either!

2nd. B4 today reboot was the only command I knew (so sad...) but I learned dmesg and tried that and dmesg reads

Ext2-fs (sda1): error: ext2_Lookup: deleted inode referenced 83359

Basically I now want to move my music but I have no working usb ports. And Its been frustrating trying to figure out what the dmesg means when today is the 1st time I opened a terminal!

Software :: Online Resize2fs: Operation Not Permitted While Trying To Add Group #14080?

Aug 22, 2010

I am running Oracle Enterprise Linux x64 5.5 on an HP Proliant DL380 G6 attached to various SAN's via fibre channel. I have setup multipath, edited multipath.conf, lvm.conf, and after some trial and error, everything behaves and looks as it should in regard to multipath. However, when I try to resize a multipath ext3 lvm filesystem, The operation runs for a while, but then dies and I get the above error. I then see this error in /var/log/messages:

EXT3-fs warning (device dm-9): ext3_group_add: No reserved GDT blocks, can't resize

-I am only using the /dev/mapper/ paths to the filesystem (ie, resize2fs /dev/mapper/testvol-lvol1 128G)
-if I unmount the filesystem, resize2fs works fine
-Have tried removing and re-adding journal file via tune2fs with no luck
-The VG has plenty of room in it and is composed of a 100GB and 200GB partition.
-Inode resize is on in the filesystem

I am wondering if online resize2fs is only for small filesystems or not recommended as a best practice or just not generally done??? As I mentioned, the operation works fine offline if I unmount the filesystem, but this won't be an option once system is in production.

Ubuntu :: Gparted Frozen - Stuck On The "shrink File System...resize2fs"

Feb 8, 2011

I'm trying to use GParted from a liveusb to resize my ext4 Ubuntu partition, but it's been stuck on the "shrink file system...resize2fs" for two days straight. The progress bar is still going back and forth, and top shows a lot of CPU activity, but it won't move past this point. I know it's a bad idea to stop GParted while it's resizing, what I can do, maybe a way to check to see if it's actually busy resizing the partition?

Nov 30, 2010

So I have a partition I wanna make smaller. I can use GParted but this is not secure. Even with backup - there are tons of personal files, I can't check 'em all if they are correct after resizing. So I thought maybe I can create a dir on another machine and do something like
Code:
cp -a / /mnt/0 # which is a mounted directory on another machine
and after repartitioning HDD get everithing back this way. Will it work?
