Hi there,
     I have a stupid problem, but i really can't find a solution on 
internet. I attempted to mount a client from the wrong IP address (the 
routing table was not correct, my bad). The mount failed due to NAT, but 
the client was able to contact the MDS. Now that I fixed the route I got 
the following error:

    the result of communication errors between this node and the MGS, a
    bad configuration, or other errors. See the syslog for more information.

    2394:0:(obd_mount.c:2164:lustre_fill_super()) Unable to mount  (-4)

I know a way to fix this is to use tunefs.lustre but I have to shutdown 
the whole cluster to do that. I guess there must be a way to be able to 
mount this client ignoring logs without the need to delete log for the 
entire cluster.

This is with lustre 2.1.1

Thank you for the help. Please CC me ( tagliavini at fbk.eu ) to the answer.
