File system corrupt after chef-client installation

#1

Hi,

it seems that the installation of the chef-client via rpm package on SLES ends in a corrupt filesystem. Do you have any experience like this and/or have a solution for this?

We do the following:

  1. create a logical volume in our volume group
  2. create the filesystem /opt/chef with "mkfs.ext3 -i0 -c0 -r0" in this logical volume
  3. install rpm package chef-14.5.33-1.sles12.x86_64.rpm
  4. unmount filesystem /opt/chef and then fsck returns an error and tries to repair the fs
  5. after mounting the /opt/chef filesystem chef-client isn't working anymore

This problem does not occur with chef-client 12.0.3. And it does not occur with XFS filesystem. Any ideas?
