Just the one node where Condor won't start.

See the other email from James Burnash about fsck'ing the file system -- in order to do this you'll have to unmount it from *all* your machines.

If it's mounted on other machines: looks like everyone has a local /scratch.

As I recall (haven't seen it in a while) this can error happen when the disk develops too many bad sectors too fast. Then the filesystem gets ro'ed at a lower level than mtab, so mount still shows it as "rw". If that is the case, smartctl and/or dmesg (or /var/log/messages) should have something to say about it. Also, if this is the cause of the problem, don't bother with fsck, replace the disk.
