  • [6.12.6 / 6.12.8] Random crash

    • Closed Urgent

    my Unraid system is random crashing wiht 6.12.6. In the syslog can be found some restarts of samba service. It seems that another user has similar problems --> https://forums.unraid.net/topic/152651-array-randomly-shutting-down/

    Syslog war recorded using a syslog server on my windows pc.
    MemTest already executed for 24h. No Problems found.

    Best regards 

    Since there was no respone from anyone within over one week (although the ticket is marked as urgent) i changed my Unraid system to another hardware. But on the new system the problem still exist.

    I'm not seeing anything relevant logged, is that the full persistent syslog? It only covers 20 minutes uptime.


    Try enabling the mirror to flash drive option in the syslog server and post that one after the new crash.

    Hi Jorge, i switched back to the original system and enabled "mirror to flash" functionality. I´ll post if the error occours again. At the meantime i updated to 6.12.8.

    This morning the NAS was in a crash state again. Attached the mirrored syslog directly from the USB device. I cant see anything directly before the crash. I got a telegram message from Healthchecks.io at 07:15 this morning ( setup on is "send message after 30 minues if no ping occours within 5 minutes )

    Unfortunately there's nothing relevant logged, one thing you can try is to boot the server in safe mode with all docker containers/VMs disabled, let it run as a basic NAS for a few days, if it still crashes it's likely a hardware problem, if it doesn't start turning on the other services one by one.

    @JorgeB The NAS is after 8 days and 9 hours still running in safe-mode with VM (Homeassistant) enabled (Docker service started without container running). I now start enabling one container by one. It seems that a hardware defect can be excluded.

    Is it possible to use cronjob in safe mode ? I want to check the health of the server via https://healthchecks.io/ 

    1. get current crontab with the command crontab -l >file

    2. modify the output file using any means, eg. sed, perl etc.

    3. apply new crontab with the command crontab file

    I believe yes.

    Dont know what has fixed the issue but after:
    - Safe mode for multiple days
    - Start docker one by one
    - Start VM
    - Disable safe mode
    - Remove unused plugins
    The system seems to run stable. It seems that its not a hardware problem. System stable since multiple days.
