Question Preventing a scan of the RAID during bootup

I have a RH 7.3 server that needs a restart today after putting a patch in place. The last time I rebooted this box was almost a year ago and when the uptime is quite long, Linux likes to check all the disks for errors, including the RAID. This adds almost 1.5Hrs to my bootup processSmilie .

Does anyone know a command/feature to turn off the scan before I shut down?

scan / mount options

Hi,

you want to permit the scanning of your filesystems at boot time ? The first way I would say is changing the mount options in the fstab file, if you replace 1 2 with 0 0 the filesystem will not be checked at boot time.
