Thank you for responding.  This is a 24/7 production server and I did not
anticipate getting a response this late on a Saturday, so I panicked quite
frankly, and went ahead and ran "xfs_repair -L" on both volumes.  I can now
mount the volumes and everything looks okay as far as I can tell.  There
were only 2 files in the "lost+found" directory after the repair.  Does that
mean only two files were lost?  Is there any way to tell how many files were

It would be nice to find out why this happened.  I suspect it is as you
suggested, previous corruption and not a hardware issue, because I have
other volumes mounted to other VM's that are attached to the same SAN
controller / RAID6 Array... and they did not have any issues - only this one

Can I still do this (or anything) to help uncover any causes or is it too
late?  I have also run yum update on the server because it was out of date.
