Panorama periodically performs a file system integrity check (FSCK) to prevent corruption of the Panorama system files. This check occurs after eight reboots or at a reboot that occurs 90 days after the last FSCK. A warning appears in the web interface and SSH login screens if an FSCK is in progress and you cannot log in until it completes. The time to complete this process varies by storage system size; for a large system, it can take several hours before you can log back into Panorama. To view progress, set up console access to Panorama.
