I keep my RockStor server turned off when not in use, so it doesn’t run 24/7.
Every time I start the server, the Rock-Ons and Plex Rock-On are turned off, so I have to go into the web GUI to re-enable both. It’s very annoying.
I’d like to just turn on the server, knowing that the Rock-Ons and Plex will automatically be active, so that I can go downstairs to start watching my stored media thru Plex.
@vlad1966 Welcome to Rockstor community. Yes this is a know “feature” I’m afraid and as you say a rather annoying one. We have an outstanding issue#721 so this will get attention in time but as the whole rock-on system is really very new things are taking time to work out / settle. I can’t see this being an outstanding issue for long and have taken a quick look at this myself but don’t yet have anything non obvious to contribute to it. I will link to this post in that issue so that you might be updated with any progress.
This is also how I would like the Rock-ons feature to work so it is yet another itch but I’m pretty itchy at the moment
They are supposed to auto restart, but there is some basic retry logic that may be failing. I’ll have to take a closer look. So I treat this as a bug and plan to fix as part of other rock-on related work in the queue. This week is a bit slow for me as I’m away. and I seriously doubt any rock-on related changes going into 3.8-9 at this point.
