This is usually what happens when you have an underlying xfs file system
as your backing store, and have had a failure which has shut the xfs
file system down.
Have a look in dmesg for the servers, and see if xfs has shut down.
Reasons for xfs shutdown include a) bugs in xfs/kernel, b) storage
Our experience is that "b" happens far more often than "a", though "a"
does happen (especially on some kernels).
