Why did my GFS2 filesystem withdraw with: function = get_leaf, file = fs/gfs2/dir.c, line = 763

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • A GFS2 withdraw is occurring similar to the following:
GFS2: fsid=MyCluster:MyGFS.0: function = get_leaf, file = fs/gfs2/dir.c, line = 763


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.8 or 5.9 (with the High Availability Add on)
  • Affected kernels are between 2.6.18-274.12.1.el5 and 2.6.18-348.1.1.el5 (not including either of these kernels)
