have been trying to fix this for hours, think I read every inode thread on here, but couldn't find a solution

Code:
df -i
Filesystem             Inodes   IUsed    IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root
                      3276800 3276442      358  100% /
tmpfs                 1001872       1  1001871    1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1              128016      53   127963    1% /boot
/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_home
                     57229312 9628544 47600768   17% /home


Code:
echo "Inode usage for: $(pwd)" ; for d in `find -maxdepth 1 -type d |cut -d\/ -f2 |grep -xv . |sort`; do c=$(find $d |wc -l) ; printf "$c\t\t- $d\n" ; done ; printf "Total: \t\t$(find $(pwd) | wc -l)\n"
Inode usage for: /
1               - backup
113             - bin
44              - boot
792             - dev
3536            - etc
30028386                - home
2               - home2
9062            - lib
408             - lib64
1               - lost+found
1               - media
3023727         - mnt
4298            - opt

find: `proc/56233': No such file or directory
657576          - proc
1425            - root
293             - sbin
1               - selinux
1               - srv
10529           - sys
12              - tmp
201416          - usr
40927           - var
find: `/proc/56348': No such file or directory
Total:          34006089
/mnt is a second hard disk, does this count for the inode use of VolGroup-lv_root?

Tried the purge_dead_comet_files, but that only deleted 600 inodes

Any advice on how to reduce the inodes or can I relocate some directories to /home partition?

Thanks

update: it does seem like files & inodes on /mnt are being added to total of VolGroup-lv_root

so it seems my host connected my second drive (500GB) under VolGroup-lv_root (50GB partition), any advice on how to proceed so 2nd drive isn't under VolGroup-lv_root?

Thanks

Hi,

Try unmounting the /mnt mounted drive for some moments, then calculate the inodes? Hopefully with remounting, you may see difference in inodes..

Give it a try..

Hello,

Making these types of changes without physical access to the system is not recommended because a simple mistake could lead to data loss or downtime. I recommend contacting your provider to let them know what happened so they can correct this and mount it to your preferences.

Thank you.
