This solution replies to:
- NG Firewall firmware versions 4.2.x, 5.0.x, 5.2.x
- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x


The system stops during boot process. A message is displayed saying that a manual file system check is required.



The file system on one of the partitions is corrupt. The netfence system is not able to correct the error automatically. The corruption is caused by a system crash or shut down while data is still written.


1. Enter the root password at the command prompt


2. Perform a manual file system check by entering the following commands:


    For IDE HDD systems:

    ext2 file system:

  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda1
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda5
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda6


    ext3 file system:

  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda1
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda5
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda6



    For SCSI HDD systems:

  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sda1
