Docker repeatedly keeps failing, server keeps becoming unresponsive after some time

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I've been running the same instance of unraid for almost 8 years. Currently upgraded to 6.12. My docker had failed 3 times alone this year where I've had to delete and create a new docker.img. 

Also, the server has a tendency to "hang", where I'd still be able to remotely access some docker apps but I cannot access the unraid gui itself. This happens as often as a day after rebooting. 

I'm not sure where to begin to look. 


Thank you in advance

was away for a little while and moved the system to another power source to make sure that wasnt causing the issues. server lasted 5-6 days of on time before it was unresponsive over the network. log attached.


3 main issues

1) server hanging

2) docker crash (was rebuilt less than a week ago)

3) upon rebooting after a hang, i cannot access the gui from my main desktop for 20-30minutes - i can only access it from my iOSl browser. (tried different browsers, incognito etc..)

Switching to ipvlan should fix it (Settings -> Docker Settings -> Docker custom network type -> ipvlan (advanced view must be enabled, top right)).


Also, and if if you haven't yet, check filesystem on this device:

Unfortunately now there's nothing relevant logged, this usually points to a hardware issue, one thing you can try is to boot the server in safe mode with all docker/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.
