An old dedicated server (Debian with Raid1) wasn't responding today and now can't boot after manual reset. Last message is

No inittab file found.

I still have access to filesystem via rescue system. Ran fsck and checked raid (both arrays are clean).

Is /etc/inittab the only file missing or does it look like other parts of / are affected?

If only inittab is missing, try googling for it and rebuilding one, or install a VM with this version of the OS to get a fresh copy, or restore from backup if available.

Also, check /lost+found: inittab may have been recovered by fsck.

  • thanks for the hint! somehow the whole /etc/ is missing, but I found /mnt/etc/innittab... I'll try to work with that – acy Jan 6 '15 at 21:25
