Yeah that was the first thing I tried after the second boot. Still shows it okay. It finally did boot, and I didn't get a chance to watch the boot process so I don't really know what it said during this boot. I don't have much confidence in booting it again to find out :)
Weird thing is I had booted it about a dozen times until finally came up. Ran into this about a year ago with this server and it's been up since the other day, so I'm pretty sure if I boot again....which I will have to very soon.... I'll be *&*&&^%^% again.
Can you set any flags to bybass filesystem checks at boot?

Sounds like you need to force a full check. Boot up into single user mode
and do e2fsck -f /dev/sdd1 to force a full check, even if the filesystem
is marked clean (ie it was cleanly unmounted, even though there's

Since there's a fair chance of corruption, today is the day you may well
be finding out if your backups are up to date and working correctly... ;->
