    Default REPAIR: Zimbra wont start

    Fellows;


    This is the error that whenever I try to get the "zmcontrol status" command. Im not a Linux expert, by the way.

    Please help me how I can fix this problem.

    Thanks.


    Here is the error:


    imbra@zimbra:~$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcontrol status

    Seems like your filesystem where Zimbra is located is read only. Is /opt an own filesystem? What does cat /etc/fstab give you? You can try remount the filesystem with write permission. IF this does not work, please provide us with the information from this:

    Code:
    su zimbra
    zmcontrol -v

    I hope you have a good backup.

    The error is caused by this:

    You've quite likely had some problem with either your HD or the filesystem: Zimbra problem

    ive tried this;

    zimbra@zimbra:~$ cat /etc/fstab
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    # /dev/sda1
    UUID=84444b1a-2a71-42f3-9136-f0a142656422 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0
    # /dev/sda5
    UUID=67867243-51ea-4fd6-ac11-20af92c5fa07 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0


    ================================================== ========

    result;

    zimbra@zimbra:~$ sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sda1

    sudo: unable to resolve host zimbra
    [sudo] password for zimbra:

    /dev/sda1:

    /dev/sda1: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
    (i.e., without -a or -p options)
    zimbra@zimbra:~$

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    is it safe? how much is the risk of getting the /opt corrupted or messed up if i run sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sda1?

    what's the better alternative?

    Do you have any SAN mounted disks ? If yes check those.

    just running e2fsck e2fsck -v /dev/sda1 should also be fine
