Forcing maintenance hardware drive check on reboot...
Edit: (This is in this section because it's Smoothwall - I wish I'd have made that obvious via the title - sorry.)
I just made the mistake of installing updates and rebooting Smoothwall (which normally happens really fast, so I can schedule it into a break-time).
Unfortunately I didn't count on this time being the time the file system would decide to check itself...
Is there anyway to force a reboot and file system check - that I could schedule at weekends - on Smoothwall Network Guardian?
(I know I can schedule updates for the weekend - but I'd like to make sure that if I ever need to reboot off-schedule, that I didn't have to chew my fingers down to stubs waiting for it to come back up.)

Y'know it (unless the SW folks have set another default) usually only checks every 30 mounts? (usually a reboot). So assuming you schedule a reboot every Saturday (or whenever), the disk check is most likely to happen on a weekend.
tune2fs (say tune2fs -i 1w) would allow you to configure it on a normal Linux box, but SW is a bit customised so I'd raise a ticket asking how best to implement it so it's persistent.
Slinging an empty file called fastboot in the root (of a normal Linux box) will abort any pending disk check (only once though) on reboot.
