NAME

fsck.ocfs2 - Check an OCFS2 file system.

SYNOPSIS

fsck.ocfs2 [ -pafFGnuvVy ] [ -b superblock block ] [ -B block size ] device

DESCRIPTION

fsck.ocfs2 is used to check an OCFS2 file system. device is the file where the file system is stored (e.g. /dev/sda1). It will almost always be a device file but a regular file will work as well.

OPTIONS

-a This option does the same thing as the -p option. It is provided for backwards compatibility only: it is suggested that people use the -p option whenever possi‐ ble. -b superblock block Normally, fsck.ocfs2 will read the superblock from the first block of the device. This option specifies an alternate block that the superblock should be read from. (Use -r instead of this option.) -B blocksize The block size, specified in bytes, can range from 512 to 4096. A value of 0, the default, is used to indicate that the blocksize should be automatically detected. -D Optimize directories in filesystem. This option causes fsck.ocfs2 to coalesce the directory entries in order to improve the filesystem performance. -f Force checking even if the file system is clean. -F By default fsck.ocfs2 will check with the cluster services to ensure that the vol‐ ume is not in-use (mounted) on any node in the cluster before proceeding. -F skips this check and should only be used when it can be guaranteed that the volume is not mounted on any node in the cluster. WARNING: If the cluster check is disabled and the volume is mounted on one or more nodes, file system corruption is very likely. If unsure, do not use this option. -G Usually fsck.ocfs2 will silently assume inodes whose generation number does not match the generation number of the super block are unused inodes. This option causes fsck.ocfs2 to ask the user if these inodes should in fact be marked unused. -n Give the 'no' answer to all questions that fsck will ask. This guarantees that the file system will not be modified and the device will be opened read-only. The out‐ put of fsck.ocfs2 with this option can be redirected to produce a record of a file system's faults. -p Automatically repair ("preen") the file system. This option will cause fsck.ocfs2 to automatically fix any problem that can be safely corrected without human inter‐ vention. If there are problems that require intervention, the descriptions will be printed and fsck.ocfs2 will exit with the value 4 logically or'd into the exit code. (See the EXIT CODE section.) This option is normally used by the system's boot scripts. -P Show progress. -r backup-number mkfs.ocfs2 makes upto 6 backup copies of the superblock at offsets 1G, 4G, 16G, 64G, 256G and 1T depending on the size of the volume. Use this option to specify the backup, 1 thru 6, to use to recover the superblock. -t Show I/O statistics. If this option is specified twice, it shows the statistics on a pass by pass basis. -y Give the 'yes' answer to all questions that fsck will ask. This will repair all faults that fsck.ocfs2 finds but will not give the operator a chance to intervene if fsck.ocfs2 decides that it wants to drastically repair the file system. -v This option causes fsck.ocfs2 to produce a very large amount of debugging output. -V Print version information and exit.

EXIT CODE

The exit code returned by fsck.ocfs2 is the sum of the following conditions: 0 - No errors 1 - File system errors corrected 2 - File system errors corrected, system should be rebooted 4 - File system errors left uncorrected 8 - Operational error 16 - Usage or syntax error 32 - fsck.ocfs2 canceled by user request 128 - Shared library error
