Getting ext/xfs filesystem corruption after 'pvmove'

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have an Active/Passive cluster and the lvm volume/filesystems are mounted on active node only. Due to the storage migration requirements, the LVM PV were moved from old storage to a new storage using pvmove command from passive node. But after this migration, the filesystems got corrupt:

    XFS (dm-210): Corruption detected! Free inode 0x121c4e0 not marked free! (mode 0x81a0)
    XFS (dm-210): Internal error xfs_trans_cancel at line 984 of file fs/xfs/xfs_trans.c.  Caller xfs_create+0x46f/0x6a0 [xfs]
    kernel: EXT4-fs error (device dm-10): ext4_journal_start_sb: Detected aborted journal
    kernel: EXT4-fs (dm-10): Remounting filesystem read-only
