Dear lustre users,

I tried to run a lfsck namespace in our lustre filesystem, lustre 
2.10.7, and the lfsck never ends and I can't stop it using the lctl 
lfsck_stop command.

I tried to kill the lfsck process, stop lustre, reboot the metadata 
server, and when I mount the combined mdt + mgs the lfsck starts again 

How can I stop the lfsck namespace process?

The commands that I runned are the following:

Start the lfsck namespace:

lctl lfsck_query -t namespace -M lustre-MDT0000

Try to stop the lfsck because it never ends:

lctl lfsck_stop -M lustre-MDT0000
