I'm running proxmox 2.2 on one of my servers, we had a UPS fail which caused a power failure to the system. Upon reboot the server outputs the following:

Setting parameters fo discs: (none).
Activating swap...done.
Checking root file system... fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
/dev/mapper/pve-root: clean, 69494/6291456 files, 2235656/25165824 blocks
done.
Cleaning up ifupdown....
Loading kernel modules...done.
Setting up networking....
Setting up LVM Volume Groups Reading all phsyical volumes. This may take a while...
Found volume group "pve" using metadata type lvm2
3 logical volumes in volume group "pve" now active
Activating lvm and md swap...done.
Checking file systems... fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
/dev/mapper/pve-data has gone 201 days without being checked, check forced.
/dev/mapper/pve-data: |= / 3.0%

This server then hangs and will not go any further. Any ideas on where to start? I am pretty new to proxmox and didn't want to fool with it too much until I got some ideas from you guys. Thanks in advance.

I added fastboot to the kernel line and bypassed it for now. Does proxmox run this only on reboot? How often should this be run to prevent this issue from re-occurring?

how big is the pve-data and how much data is in use? it might have not hung just taken time to run the check...

Like hotwired007 said, it's true. For example my 5.5 TB volume can hang for 3-5 minutes during scan. fsck is terribly slow for ext3 filesystem.

Pve-data is 3.7TB and 978GB is in use. I am going to restart it again when I get the chance today and time it, but I let it sit for at least 5-10 minutes with zero movement. If that's normal then I'll give it another try, it just seemed odd to hang there. Thanks for the info.
