We are having an cluster environment running on GFS2 + CTDB + Samba. Due to
some unavoidable circumstances we were forced to hard reboot the server 2 to
3 times. After the 3rd time restart, everything worked fine without any
issues. But after 4 to 5 hours online, we got a trigger stating File System
consistency error in one of the GFS2 partition. Hard reboot of 2 to 3 times
a server, whether it affects the GFS2 file system. Is that the file system
is that much sensitive. Whereas we won't have any issues in ext3/ext4 file
system earlier in related scenarios. Can anyone revert on the GFS2
consistency and its recommendation to run in production environment.
