It complains about a dirty shutdown and then fails to mount.  You either have a bad disk or a whacked filesystem from the dirty shutdown.  Hopefully you have a config backup?

Thanks for your answer :)
Yes, I do have backup, the firewall is in another country so I am waiting for ILO access to it to figure out what happen

is it usles to try fsck -y  on system?

It is always usefull to run a fsck on a system.
At best, it finds nothing to do. Your disk is marked clean again and the system will boot.
At worst, it will tell you it could repair things and you know you won a trip to the local "new disk store".


The situation is pretty identical to what we have been seen the last two decades with a non-clean shutdown of a Windows PC. It's CHKDSK time ;)
