lfsck is not supported on Lustre 2.x filesystems as it hasn't been
migrated to the new fid code.  There is a project which I believe is
sponsored by OpenSFS to implement an on-line equivalent but it's not due
until sometime next year.

There is some data available on the Whamcloud wiki site, I just found
this via a quick search so there may well be better documentation
