|Issue||This article explains how to recover failed RSA Authentication Manager 8.x virtual appliance when the filesystem is stuck in read-only mode.|
The following message is shown:
fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot. The root file system is currently mounted read-only.
Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue):
To resolve the issue,
- Reboot the RSA SecurID appliance
- In the space provided for Boot Option, key in init=/bin/sh.
- Run the following command. Note that it may warn/error that the partition is already unmounted. It is safe to ignore the message in that case.
fsck -y /dev/sda1
- Reset the virtual appliance. The system will not prompt for root password and the normal boot will occur.
