/media 1 missing after reboot (CPS-UCS-2RU-K9)

Hi folks, odd thing happened yesterday. I came in after the weekend and noticed that one of my media servers was unresponsive. After trying different methods to access it was just dead in the water. When I went to the server, its power button was amber, but the other lights were green, no drive lights were flashing either. I pressed the power button and it started to boot as normal. -Side note, we have 5 other media servers in the same rack and did not have this problem with any of them- So after the server boots up I log into the management console of the server and notice that my /media 1 partition is gone.

Does anyone know what could have happened, and more importantly, how to recover the /media 1 partition?

the RAID status in the management console says that all raid controllers are up and running at optimal and looks identical to another media server of the same model.

Thanks for any help!


I ran the following commands and got these results.

... also, which HW platform are we talking about here?  If MSP chassis, you can dump all the information about the RAID array and logical volumes with the MegaRAID cli utility:

/opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli -pdlist -a0

/opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli -ldinfo -lall -a0

... if you're working with the newer UCS chassis, the CIMC console is an excellent option to review the disk subsystem status.

Also, if the services are otherwise operational, a Support Report will gather all the pertinent logs for you(us?) to review.

All the best.  I know that feeling of a storage volume MIA and it sucks.

Hi Nicholas,

Hi Nicholas,

Can you please share the output of from the CLI of the server:

"cat /proc/partitions"

"cat /etc/fstab"

Just try to execute this command as well " mount -a".

And then share the output of all the commands. I am suspecting the partitions may be corrupted and we may need to repair the partitions in order to get it back added on this server.
