by Tommy Grot

For this little walk through, we will be using my VMware Cloud Director 10.3.2a applaince i have in my lab, it did not shut down safely so we will repair it! 🙂

Reboot the VMware Cloud Director appliance – then press ‘e’ immediatly to load into the GRUB, and at the end ot $systemd_cmdline add the following

” systemd.unit=emergency.target ”

Then hit F10 to boot

Run this following command to repaire the disk.

e2fsck -y /dev/sda3

Once Repaired – Shutdown VMware Cloud Director appliance and then power backon

VCD is now loading!
