If at one time, the storage pool went out of space, then the FS is most
likely corrupted. Fixing the space issue will prevent further
corruption, but won't fix the already corrupted FS. You said

I don't know what this SAN hosted.

Anyway, If errors come back after reformating the volume, then you still
have something not fixed. Please tell us how are things configured, what
kind of storage it's using, which layers are involved etc... (thin prov,
iSCSI, LVM on top etc...)
