[OpenAFS] disaster recovery
Tue, 19 Sep 2006 21:16:49 +0300 (EEST)
One 1.3.87 linux fileserver died today. After a reboot, the filesystem
check on vicepa spitted out numerous errors, it "fixed" them filling
lost+found with data, and then after salavage I ended up with half the
volumes missing or corrupted.
I had one backup a few days old which I used to restore the
volumes. I also have a copy of the /vicepa contents from yesterday, when
the server started to behave strangely. Is there a way to use the
/vicepa contents in order to access certain files/directories?
Unfortunately I do not have a copy of the db files.
