lvm2 fails to mount / at boot

Postby DebbyIan » 2017-05-12 02:15

I am curious if anyone has seen this happen at boot:

Code: Select all
Mounting /...
Failed to mount /.


All other lvms in the container have mounted correctly. Seems the system is confusing / with the PV container itself and trying to mount the PV as / as ext4 which it can't. There are no systemd logs at this stage of the boot process.

[SOLVED] lvm2 fails to mount / at boot

Turns out the ext4 fs was a little corrupted as I had yanked it without properly umounting first. The partition wouldn't umount as it had /proc /sys /dev /dev/pts bind mounted in there. Had to reinstall and this time umounted the kernel fs from inside the chroot environment.
