KB01587 - Velocity Gateway - System Error on boot up, how to run FSCK

SKUs: AT-VGW-250

QUESTION: Why is Velocity Gateway giving a System Error on boot up and what can I do?

ANSWER: Velocity has a corrupt system file, which we need to do a FSCK (File System Consistency Check)

Shell Command Method:

  1. Connect a USB Keyboard to one of the USB ports on the Velocity Gateway
  2. At the error screen, type in the following:
    • fsck -yf /dev/mmcblk0p2
    • Or you can type fsck /dev/mmcblk0p2/ and manually type [Y] on errors that pop up.
  3. Power Cycle the Velocity Gateway to reboot with the repaired system file. The Gateway should be restored to normal operation after rebooting.


fsck = file system consistency check

-y = yes on auto repair (-a = auto repair, but require user intervention for errors)

-f = force
