View Full Version : [ubuntu] No Disk Space left on drive /

Hey All,

About a month ago I installed a new ubuntu intrepid server in my office. There are two issues I am having:

1. During bootup I always get jumped into recovery mode, one of my partitions which is the file server is having errors. fsck automatically runs, then it kicks me out to the terminal and says to run it manually. I do that, fix a bunch of errors (clear inodes, etc.) but at reboot the problems occur again. I recently did it and lost a bunch of files on my file server.

2. The root (/) partition is shows as full. I have 2 GB in there and know for a fact it can't be full. Here is an output of my parition table

root@dc01-lg:/# df -ah

I have have 2 160 GB drivers in software raid setup to hold my OS and I have two 500 GB drives to hold my data (/ldapdata and /ldapbackup)

I could use all the help I could, thanks so much.

Okay, I figured out the issue with my server. I had a fakeraid installed onto the server but I had disabled the bios hardware controller. This in turn ruined the configuration. Anyways, thanks for all who viewed :-)
