Old drives still referenced #206
NOTE ALSO: I use greyhole on an Amahi server. References to "wiki" are Amahi wiki.
NOTE: i collected all of the information requested in the Wiki article. Even with much of the info going to apaste the result was quite lengthy so I apasted it as well, the information can be found at: https://paste.fedoraproject.org/paste/r ... UwkUJa96wQ
I started with the oldest disk (which is named WD-2). I did a "greyhole --going" on the drive. (I also unchecked it in the Drive Pooling->Partitions tab.) It took about 20 hours to move everything off of the drive and do the fsck. After the fsck for the "going" finished I did an additional one: "greyhole --fsck -o -m", just to insure nothing got lost.
I cleared off WD-2 and added it back as /var/hda/drives/pool2. I followed this with a "greyhole --fsck -o -m". Everything seems fine and as near as I can tell nothing got lost.
I have run the fsck several times, the errors remain and don't appear to be fixed. Is there any way to clean this up? It makes it hard to dig through the log to see if fsck found anything real.
It indeed looks like this warning is logged even if the metadata file is already marked as Gone. I implemented a fix here: 3399724
After upgrading, you can test by running a fsck on only a small directory that generated those errors:
