    We have 8 RHEL 5 / Cpanel servers with ThePlanet. In the past 12-15 months, we have had 7 occurrences of aborted journals that cause the /home partition to go read-only. This of course basically renders the server useless, we have to request a manual FSCK and usually have around 1-2 hours of downtime.

    The first couple of times it happenned I though they were random occurences of data corruption. They usually happen after the deletion of a "non-existent" file.

    linux kernel: EXT3-fs warning (device sda8): ext3_unlink: Deleting nonexistent file (2097887), 0

    After that, the journal aborts

    linux kernel: EXT3-fs error (device sda8): ext3_lookup: unlinked inode 2097370 in dir #2097369
    linux kernel: EXT3-fs error (device sda8): ext3_journal_start_sb: Detected aborted journal

    The partition goes to read-only

    Finding the corrupted files will always lead you to a cur folder on a mail folder of a customer's account. The filenames all appear red. It puzzles me is always a mailbox file that causes this.

    Anyone else has seen this? Any possible cause or way to avoid it or fix it?

    Warm Regards and many thanks.

    Does anyone thinks this may solve the issue?

    You can try to boot with acpi=off

    Add this to the end of end bootloader command

    acpi=off noacpi

    I have the same issue. I've changed 5 new harddisk and new server board, and ram in one month time.
