    today I've discovered that a mksnap_ffs got stuck on my server. The process just hung. A truss -p <PID> showed nothing. After a while I decided to reboot the machine, which did not work, so I was forced to reset the server.

    I chose to boot it into single-user mode and did a fsck -yf on all disks. Once this was complete I let the system enter multi-user mode. During the "mounting filesystem" step the system hung for a few seconds (which doesn't seem right) and showed up this warning/error:

    ffs_snapshot_mount: old format snapshot inode 17

    As far as I can tell from some google search results this indicates a filesystem corruption. Is this true? How am I supposed to fix it?
