Last week at work, we found a machine that got some file-systems unmounted and a colleague decided -as almost anyone would have done- to mount them and check if there is data inside…
Suddenly, the machine had a kernel panic and rebooted. WTF?!
- By design, Solaris kernel would crash when any inconsistency is found on a file-system.
- Machine was in production.
- Lesson learn: NEVER mount a file-system without first check it by fsck.
I’ll never understand some “design” things …
