Operating Systems Solaris Not able to run fsck on root file system Post 302597345 by ningy on Friday 10th of February 2012 03:48:20 AM

i can see the mistakes you are doing here.

fsck should never be run on mounted FS.
There is no need to mount the root FS before fscking.
Unmount and run again.

Also it should be fsck /dev/rdsk/....

Please paste the output also.

NAME
systemd-fsck@.service, systemd-fsck-root.service, systemd-fsck - File system checker logic SYNOPSIS
systemd-fsck@.service systemd-fsck-root.service /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-fsck DESCRIPTION
systemd-fsck@.service is a service responsible for file system checks. It is instantiated for each device that requires a file system check. systemd-fsck-root.service is responsible for file system checks on the root file system. The root file system check is performed before the other file systems. Either service is enabled at boot if passno in /etc/fstab for the filesystem is set to a value greater than zero. systemd-fsck will forward file system checking progress to the console. If a file system check fails, emergency mode is activated, by isolating to emergency.target. KERNEL COMMAND LINE
systemd-fsck understands one kernel command line parameter: fsck.mode= One of "auto", "force", "skip". Controls the mode of operation. The default is "auto", and ensures that file system checks are done when the file system checker deems them necessary. "force" unconditionally results in full file system checks. "skip" skips any file system checks. SEE ALSO
