I suspect there may be some filesystem corruption in a VE. Is it possible
to fsck the simfs filesystem for a single container somehow, or do I need
to stop all containers on the hardware node partition partition holding the
simfs in order to check the filesystem?

Simfs is "isolation" type of fs so you need to check the host partition.

Dear Rene,

simfs is a proxy-filesystem.
you need to stop all containers and check file-system on underlying device (ext4 on /vz ?)

thank you,

Thanks everybody. Hm, that's a bit of a bummer.

Would using ploop fs change that? (I mean, I understand it won't fix the
present problem but for the future)

Hi Vasily,

yes. Ploop creates a new block device on which you then create a new fs.
