cat: shadow: Input/output error

If you see this you are probably in big trouble, it could be a physical error or if it's a VM image that it is corrupted due to a physical error on the underlying disk/array/NAS or it could also be that somehow the image was accessed and mounted more than once concurrently. This is almost always impossible to fix but you can always try to fsck anyway!
