Error at server boot: "Errors were found when checking for disk drive"

  • Posted August 6, 2014


Suddenly my Gitlab server stopped working at all - no response. So I tried to reboot it. Then this error came up:

“Errors were found while checking the disk drive for /. keys: Press F to attempty to fix the errors, I to ignore, S to skip mounting of M for manual recovery”

This seems like a hardware-problem or? ’

I pushed “F” and it started again - normally it seems, But now the Git on the server seems to be corrupt. When we try to push we get:

“fatal: missing blob object ‘ff124da34bb47d9044f561d685d0ac124f2a73a6’”

We are really frustrated by this because our developer team can’t push to the server and therefore can’t develop further, please help.
