|cannot access web page after fsck||SeeHeng Lee||9/14/12 5:33 PM|
I have a problem with my flashed Alt-F DNS33 unit.
I recently had to remove power plug without a propse. shutdown. Since then, whenever I power up the DNS323, the status page show "Checking...x%". I could access telnet at this stage. After I left it running till near completion, I cannot access the webpage or telnet anymore.
I tried booting the DNS323 without the HardDisk, and there was no problem. Similarly, if I telnet into the DNS32 during the initial stage, I could kill the fsck process, and sometimes mounted the disk as RO.
I also read the wiki, and tried some recovery steps you mentioned in other threads in this forum, all without success.
Do you have any more ideas?

Why don't you wait until it finishes?
This issue returned?! Only after the unclean shutdown, or before that also?
After an unclean shutdown a 'fsck' has to be performed. Alt-F always performs a fsck at boot or disk insertion/detection; if the filesystems in the disk are clean, the fsck only takes a couple of seconds; if they are dirty, 'fsck' can take hours to complete; if there is some problem that fsck does not dare to automatically fix, the filesystems are mounted RO and manual intervention is needed.
Consult System->Utilities->Logs, System Log, and search for fsk and "manual intervention". If it appears in the logs, you have to ssh/telnet the box and perform a manual fsck, not supplying a '-p' option, and, optionally supplying a '-y' option, such as 'fsck -fy /dev/<your device here, such as sda2>'
Alt-F does not perform a fsck this way automatically as there is the possibility of data loss, that's why filesystems are mounted RO, so you might do a backup before performing the "force, yes (-fy)" fsck.
This has nothing to do with recovery.

The process "cannot" finish. If I leave it running, eventually the web page becomes not responsive at all. I cannot do anything after that.
After waiting for fsck to complete for a long time.

If 'fsck' is taking so long, perhaps you don't have enough virtual memory (swap).
How was your disks partitioned? What does appears as "Swap" the Status page?

Sorry I have already reformatted so I do not have that number anymore.
