    • OMV Shutting Down/Restarting Randomly

      So my OMV system seems to shut itself down and/or restart quite often. At first it seemed to be after doing an apt-get update/upgrade but now it seems completely random. Now sometimes it will stay on for 10 or 12 days, and sometimes it will restart every 12 hours. Now it appears to be shutting down completely more often than restarting, at which point I have to physically restart the system.

      I did a new build of OMV 4.x about 8 months ago, and the restarts probably started happening 2-3 months ago.

      I came across the thread on how to reduce resource limit errors and changed the /etc/default/openmediavault value to OMV_MONIT_SERVICE_FILESYSTEM_SPACEUSAGE="95", but the changes never appeared to take effect, as the web interface still shows one of my drives above the resource limit, even though it is only approximately 87% full.

      Then I came across this thread…?postID=215087#post215087 and tried to complete the instructions within, but ran into a problem with the /etc/init.d/openmediavault-engined restart step, getting an error saying "-bash: /etc/init.d/openmediavault-engined: No such file or directory"

      So I guess my question is two-fold:

      1. What am I doing incorrectly that is causing my resource limit change to not take effect?

      2. What can I do to check on what is causing these unexpected shutdowns and restarts?

      Any help is greatly appreciated. :)
    • Not sure on the logs question, but I'd start with syslog and maybe boot... See if they are showing anything weird on the times this happens.

      I will say, I've built computers a long time, and random reboots and and shutdowns have generally been hardware related to PSU, RAM, CPU. In that order
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

    • For me it doesn't help unless you have times this is happening. If it was just shutting down, I would think heat... but the fact it is sometimes shutting down and sometimes restarting, is making me think there is a power irregularity.
