Hi all

Is there any possibillity to fsck a 1.2 TB 40% filled volume with a
machine that has not that much memory, in this case only 1.5 GB.

The fsck gives me a friendly

# fsck /dev/da1
** /dev/da1
** Last Mounted on /fileserver
** Phase 1 - Check Blocks and Sizes
fsck_ufs: cannot alloc 4290901164 bytes for inoinfo

and quits.

quite a lot of memory. on i386 you simply can't allocate >4GB VM.

but i have larger volumes without problems.

what was your newfs options when creating it.

of course you did man fsck_ffs ? :) default options are NOT good, overallocates inodes, and possibly needs that amount of ram because of this.

if your machine is 64-bit capable use amd64 not i386 version - no 4GB limit.
