Inconsistant Ability to Connect to UnRAID


Netbug

Recommended Posts

Hello again.

 

I'm at a bit of a loss here. I'm having a very difficult time consistently connecting to the UnRAID server either through the browser interface or through PuTTy.

 

I can ping consistently. When I hooked up a monitor to the box, I can't see any problems; but this is my first foray into Linux so I'm a little over my head.

 

When I try to connect through PuTTy, it is flashing the black prompt and then closing.

 

When I try to connect though the browser interface, 80% of the time, it gives me "Unable to connect". This is happening on two different machines.

 

I can ping and browse to the UnRAID system fine, and I haven't had any media stop or pause unexpectedly. It's very strange.

 

Where should I start looking?  ???

to connect with putty,

 

try using "telnet" for the connection type. the default is SSH.

 

you can also check at the bottom not to close on exit so you can see the error.

 

I had it on telnet. Didn't know about the ability to not close on exit, thanks for that.

 

Still kinda random. I'll grab the error next time I see it. It hasn't spat me out in the last hour or so. Which is good... but I hate problems that just disappear. :/

Of course it went away.

 

You now have it so you could see the error the gremlin was causing, and therefore it moved away to easier pickings (or when you least expect/want it)

Here's what I'm getting in PuTTy when it won't connect:

 

First error message - "Connection closed by remote host"

Second error message - "Connection Refused"

Then an inactive PuTTy screen.

 

I close it, try again, same thing, then the third time it connects.

 

It really seems like a network error, but I'm not losing any packets to the tower.  ???

Are you connecting by IP or DNS name?

 

by the fact you got connection refused instead of host not found, it sounds like you hit the box. or at least A BOX if not unraid.

 

That's what confusing. I'm using the IP, and it's definitely hitting something. There's no network conflict (it's not that big a network and everything is static). And the inconsistency of it is baffling.

 

I'll grab the syslog when I get home for you guys.

Okie dokie. Arrived home and had a look at the syslog. It's huge. Do I just cut and paste it here or is there a preferred convention for posting it?

 

Also, off-topic, got an email about a pre-clear. It had the following in it:

 

== Disk /dev/sda has NOT been successfully precleared

== Postread detected un-expected non-zero bytes on disk==

== Ran 1 cycle

 

Is that important?  ???

hrmm.. I didn't really look, but I would guess that you're server was ignoring you because it was hooked on phonics.. err trying to spindown 2

 

Hmmm. ok. Anything I can do about the fonyx... situation to prevent it messing with this? Why would a drive spindown interfere with access to the unRAID interface via telnet?

I am not saying that is the issue at all, I just have had times where even my box ignores webgui and telnet requests because it is busy doing something else...

 

again, I am not saying that is the issue, that was the only thing i noticed that jumped out at me. hundreds and hundreds of requests to spindown 2...

 

Perhaps someone else can enlighten us on the  issue.

Okie dokie. This is all very new to me. :)

 

Is that an unusual number of spindown requests?
