Today we had a power surge at my house. Usually I don't care because I have an UPS that handles it. My apsupsd was programmed to do a soft shutdown at 80% remaining battery. Unfortunately this time something went bad. The surge was strange, like a power drop, my work computer (which is not connected to the UPS) suddenly restarted, it was like a burst. To my surprise I receive a monitoring alert that my NAS was down, and when I check it was shutdown, which is strange because soft shutdown shouldn't have been triggered in this case.
I started the NAS again and it never booted, it stays in a black screen with the cursor blinking. I removed my RAID1 disks and my SSD which is mounted in a USB case, and tried to recover the partition using my work computer, with no luck at all.
Sadly, my OMV backups are inside the RAID1 (FSarchiver backups) so I mounted the raid1 using systemrescuecd, so I can recover the backup and dump it to the SSD.
I recovered the backup successfully, but then again black screen, it didn't solve the issue at all. I'm now reinstalling OMV from scratch, but really it's puzzling, maybe my SSD has been damaged?.
I will keep the backups and probably try to restore them later, but really does anyone had a similar experience?.
