Linux OS not starting on server - Couldn’t find matching filesystem

Hi all,


I have two call manager servers, that have been upgraded from version 4 (on windows) to version 5 (on Linux).


The upgrade took place two years ago. Last week, the following problem was encountered on the publisher during booting (after a power failure):


Couldn’t find matching filesystem: LABEL=/common
Give root password for maintenance
(or type control-D for normal startup)


At the Control-D, the system boots and gets back to the same error.


Does anyone have an idea how can I solve this problem?


Thank you.

This is a common issue if the system was not gracefully shutdown (such as a power failure).


You may use the Recovery CD to fix the file system.  Recovery CD can be downloaded from CCO:

http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/ImageList.x?relVer=7.1%283a%29&mdfid=282421166&sftType=Unified+Communications+Manager+Recovery+Software&optPlat=&nodecount=2&edesignator=null&modelName=Cisco+Unified+Communications+Manager+Version+7.1&treeMdfId=278875240&treeName=Voice+and+Unified+Communications&modifmdfid=null&imname=&hybrid=Y&imst=N&lr=Y


If you're running Linux version of CUCM, it's recommended to use the highest version of the Recovery CD.  (not necessarily match your CUCM version).


Hope this helps!

Hi,


Thank you for the link. I will download it now.


Some Linux forums told me to use the Linux CD (But it was a migration CD from version 4 on Windows to version 5 on Linux). I have people now looking for the migration CD. But I guess your link is better because it's a Linux Recovery.


I'll keep you posted if this works.


Thanks!


Best Regards,

Mazen!
