Sorry I’ve been very quiet the last 6 months or so, not been very involved.
I had lots of console errors last night on my system drive (nvme - Rockstor 3.92-57 still, 213G free on / ).
It was fine the day before, but last night as I went to shut down from the UI, I couldn’t connect. couldn’t ssh either, and it wasn’t showing up in DHCP leases on the router. Plugged a monitor and keyboard in to see what was going on.
It happened last week, too (not being able to connect to the UI, or by ssh, I didn’t connect a monitor and keyboard on that occasion)
Also on the console there was:
systemd-journald Failed to send WATCHDOG=1 notification message: Transport endpoint is not connected
I guess if the system disk is having problems, logging to it is going to be compromised.
Having done a hard shutdown, it successfully restarted, but there doesn’t seem to be anything in the logs about it… again, I guess if the disk/filesystem completely went haywire you wouldn’t see anything.
I’ll have a closer look today. Any advice on things to check/maintenance to do?
Many thanks again, and best wishes,
