I managed to set /dev/sdb to gpt, mkfs.xfs then mount it. But whenever I rsycnc file, it will shows kernel error related to xfs in log messages and failed at about 5GB to 6GB total size rsync.

I read that if I want to use ext4, I need to recompile e2fsprogs to => 1.4.3 (current 1.4.1) with 64 bit options.

What are my options? I'm thinking of sharing that 40tb storage from another server as NFS to this SLES 11 server.

error: filesystem "sdb": XFS internal error xfs_alloc_read_agf at line 2293 of file /usr/src/BUILD/kernel-default- Caller 0xffffffffa0324780

  • novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=3594951 : Seems there's a kernel available in SP1 matching yours. If there's a bug in the kernel, best thing is to upgrade it (there's also a newer (3.0) in SP4) – A.B Oct 23 '17 at 1:26
  • too bad I can't upgrade since there's no more support contract with suse many years ago. – grepmaster Oct 23 '17 at 9:44

Upgrade to the latest SLES and open a support case.

If you will not get support, migrate the services on this host to an operating system that does not need paid support.
