Last night my server crashed, after reboot I have found it has a disk failure
The configuration is 2 x 500GB sata on Centos 6
- sda3/sdb3 is software RAID1
- sda1/sdb1 = ext3 for /
- sda2/sdb2 = swap
- sda3/sdb3 = LVM
- LVM = /var, /usr, /home, /opt, /backup
disk sdb has failed, it is currently running only on sda
Now for the magic...
after rebooting, the entire filesystem has gone back a year and a half?
today is 14/07/15, the last file updated is 15/02/14
So my question is, how can a LVM on top of RAID1 go back in time???
no backups, well at least not in date anymore :( they were all on the LVM /backup partition which has also gone back in time
