Welcome to emergency mode ! Linux

Emergency mode in linux appear due to corruption in filesystem or incorrect entry in the fstab file

Dont panic, just give the password for root and you will be able to enter the command line

Check if recently any changed happen in the filesystem part

This error can be fixed using fsck.ext4 /directory where ext4 stands for filesystem type

Check /etc/fstab entries if all entries are correct

[root@orcl19x data01]# cat /etc/fstab
