Ok, this is one possibility wo don't think of. But if this is so, we  
would have a big problem. There are 900 GB on the harddisks (Raid5).  
So we need to store the data elsewere, reformat the raid and then role  
back the data? But what happens with the data which are corrupt on the  
server right know. We never got any messages that we have problems  
with our fs.

Ok, but thx for the fast answer. I will discuss this with my colleagues.
