Meta Data structure damage in HP-Unix operating system
An unbootable hard drive volume is one of the common problems encountered by usersworking on HP-Unix operating system. Few main reasons responsible for anunmountable behavior are file system damage, metadata structure corruption, virusattack, and more. One of the major consequences of an unbootable hard drive volume isthe inaccessibility of data stored in that particular volume. To access the data stored inthat volume, the best possible way is to restore the data from an updated backup.However, if no back up is available or backup falls short to restore the desired data, thenyou will need to use advanced HP-Unix Data Recovery application that can successfullyrecover your lost data.As a practical example, you encounter the below error message, when you attempt tomount your HP-Unix based system:“vxfs fsck: file system had I/O error(s) on meta-data.log replay in progressfile system is not clean, full fsck required pass0 - checking structural files pass1 - checking inode sanity and blocksvxfs fsck: fsck read failure bno = 237640, off = 0, len = 8192file system check failure, aborting...”The above error message appears each time you attempt to mount your system.Cause:The root cause for the above error message, as stated in the error message, is theinput/output error(s) in the file system.Resolution:The best way to resolve the file system corruption HP-Unix operating system is to run theFSCK command (also suggested in the error message). However, in this case, the FSCK command will not be able to resolve the problem because the command can not resolvethe input/output errors. Two ways to overcome the above issue are discussed below:
Change the hard drive.
