APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Running fsck in maintenance mode causes messages
    such as this:
    
    # fsck /dev/hd3
    
    The current volume is: /dev/hd3
    Primary superblock is valid.
    Could not load program /sbin/helpers/jfs2/logredo64:
    Cannot run a 64-bit program until the 64-bit
            environment has been configured. See the system
    administrator.
    J2_LOGREDO:log redo processing for /dev/hd3
    Primary superblock is valid.
    *** Phase 1 - Initial inode scan
    *** Phase 2 - Process remaining directories
    *** Phase 3 - Process remaining files
    *** Phase 4 - Check and repair inode allocation map
    *** Phase 5 - Check and repair block allocation map
    File system is clean.
    
    fsck succeeds but the messages cause unnecessary concern.
    

Local fix

  • Ignore the message. Although the 64-bit version of
    the program fails the 32-bit version is executed
    successfully.
    

Problem summary

  • Running logredo in maintenance mode causes unnecessary error
    messages like
    "Could not load program /sbin/helpers/jfs2/logredo64:
    Cannot run a 64-bit program until the 64-bit
    environment has been configured"
    thought the command runs correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Made logredo to check for maintainence mode & exec the
    appropriate binary in the first instance itself, without
    attempting to exec anything else.
    

Temporary fix
