Can't execute fsck
I have a Mythbuntu virtual machine running on Citrix Xenserver. I had a power outage recently which has wreaked havoc and I've had to restore the VM from a backup. Now I can't mount a couple of the disks. I've unmounted the disks but when I try to run fsck I get this error:
$ sudo fsck /dev/xvdb1
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1
e2fsck 1.42 (29-Nov-2011)
fsck.ext4: Operation not permitted while trying to open /dev/xvdb1
You must have r/w access to the filesystem or be root
Well, I'm using sudo so surely I am root, so how come it's giving me this error? Is it something to do with it being a VM? Any ideas how I can get fsck to run?
