[lustre-discuss] lustre 2.5.2 - unable to mount ost

I'm wondering if someone can help.   We're running lustre 2.5.2 and our filesystem is unable to start due to one of the ost's which will not mount.  There seems to be some corruption with the configuration logs (or the "lfs1-client" log which is specific to our setup I'm guessing).  I am able to mount the underlying ldiskfs filesystem for this ost. Here is the mount command and syslog errors reported when attempting to mount:

root at oss2 ~ # mount -t lustre /dev/mapper/ost5 /mnt/ost5
mount.lustre: mount /dev/mapper/ost5 at /mnt/ost5 failed: No such file or directory
Is the MGS specification correct?
Is the filesystem name correct?
If upgrading, is the copied client log valid? (see upgrade docs)

It looks like lustre has some built-in fencing mechanism and refuses to mount this volume.  We have 6 osts in total and the others can mount without issue.  Any suggestions on what to try?  I've already run e2fsck and that comes back with a few minor issues.  The other osts have the same thing but they are able to mount.
