I am unable to mount an ext3 filesystem on RHEL AS 2.1. This is not the
boot or root filesystem.
When I try to mount the file system, I get the following error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdj1,
or too many mounted file systems
When I try to run e2fsck -vvfy /dev/sdj1 I get the following error:
Group descriptors look bad... trying backup blocks...
When I try running e2fsck -b 294912 -vvfy /dev/sdj1 (providing backup
superblock location ..which I tried several of) I get the following error:
In dmesg, after trying to mount the filesystem, I get the following
EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted !
EXT3-fs error (device sd(8,145)): ext3_check_descriptors: Block bitmap for
group 128 not in group (block 523)!
