Files are missing on ext3 filesystem managed by rgmanager on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Filesystem had a problem and we ran the fsck to fix, but later files from batch jobs have started going missing.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5) Advanced Platform
  • Red Hat Cluster Suite Cluster
    • Services are managed by rgamanger
    • Services contain filesystem resources, which are ext3 filesystems. Filesystem resources have the following options:
      • force_fsck="1" force_unmount="0" self_fence="0"
    • Filesystems are on LVM logical volumes, but HA-LVM is not configured dispite the use of ext3 filesystems.
    • Filesystem may or may not have been fscked several days ago, indicating that there is a history of filesystem corruption.
    • Daily batch output files are missing for several days from their expected location.
