I want to ask help on how to solve my problem broken pipe when creating the file system through ssh. Here is the result when I issue the create filesystem command in ssh.
[root@6~]# mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sda4 mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006) Filesystem label= OS type: Linux Block size=4096 (log=2) Fragment size=4096 (log=2) 236699648 inodes, 473391371 blocks 23669568 blocks (5.00%) reserved for the super user First data block=0 Maximum filesystem blocks=4294967296 14447 block groups 32768 blocks per group, 32768 fragments per group 16384 inodes per group Superblock backups stored on blocks: 32768, 98304, 163840, 229376, 294912, 819200, 884736, 1605632, 2654208, 4096000, 7962624, 11239424, 20480000, 23887872, 71663616, 78675968, 102400000, 214990848 Writing inode tables: done Creating journal (32768 blocks): done Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: Write failed: Broken pipe
I'm wondering if the problem is caused by internet connection? Or because the partition that I am creating the file system is large (1.5TB)?
I would also like to ask for suggestions on other options. I can only connect thru ssh to the server.
I is possible to have the command
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sda4 on a crontab?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
