RESOLVED - Did my (new) SSD just die, or did I accidentally a stupid?

Hi Rockstor community,

Contrary to my previous topic, I have not yet gotten to DDing my rockstor install across to an NVMe SSD, I’m still using a good ol’ transcend 120Gb SATA SSD.

I attempted installation of multiple Rockons this evening, and my system has quite suddenly ceased booting.
The last items I performed were an installation of ZoneMinder (The v1.29 rockon, not the V1.3), and setting the management interface in services.

On boot, I can see the following:

ata2.00: ATA-10: TS120GSSD220S, P1025F3, max UDMA/133
ata2.00: 234441648 sectors, multi 2: LBA48 NCQ (depth 31/32), AA
ata2.00: READ LOG DMA EXT failed, trying unqueued
ata2.00: failed to set xfermode (err_mask=0x40)

This eventually gives way to:

systemd[1]: Failed to start Switch Root.

To me it looks like the (2 day old) SSD has died.

The other possibility I can think of (assuming this isn’t a hardware issue) is that I may have inadvertantly set the wrong share path for a Rockon. Is Rockon installation destructive? Could I have destroyed root by setting the share path to the root share?

SSD is working fine, I had installed ZoneMinder and specified one of the shares as the system root share.

As ZoneMinder runs with elevated privileges, it was able to remove things that would normally have been protected.
