2.13. gfs2-utils

download PDF
The gfs2-utils packages provide the user-level tools necessary to mount, create, maintain and test GFS2 file systems.
If gfs2 is used as the root file system, the first boot attempt will fail with the error message "fsck.gfs2: invalid option -- a". To work around this issue:
  1. Enter the root password when prompted.
  2. Mount the root file system manually:
    ~]# mount -o remount,rw /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /
  3. Edit the /etc/fstab file from:
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / gfs2 defaults 1 1
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / gfs2 defaults 1 0
  4. Reboot the system.


Note, however that using GFS2 as the root file system is unsupported.
