A DIY solution to an invalid node structure problem
Authored by: uglyDave on Sep 19, '11 07:47:26PM

Thanks spiralscratch, you just now, saved my bacon.
We have an Xserve that had a major RAID malfunction, and when we rectified that the boot partition had an invalid node structure. Couldn't boot from the boot partition anymore.
Booting from the DVD, Diskutil couldn't fix it, but
/sbin/fsck_hfs -ypr /dev/partition
in terminal worked. It finished the first time with a couple of errors, so I ran it again and it finished with no errors.
The drive appears all good now, which is awesome as I was looking at a major re-build. Diskutil now reports no issues at all.
Multiple tests have all come back green, so many many thanks for your post spiralstretch, you tha man !
