Hi all, I am having a very strange issue - this happened 2 weeks ago when I last rebooted my server.
Essentially, I performed
sudo reboot via SSH.
My server never rebooted - upon logging into my server via a IPMI Java Applet, I could see the server wasn’t booting into its boot partition. I quickly rebooted my server into rescue mode, where I had to perform manual work to rebuild the boot partition - this took me a LONG time since I’m not all that familiar with Linux commands.
All has been well until today, when I rebooted my server again via
sudo reboot command.
This time, it appeared my server booted straight into GRUB BASH console. I tried setting the root directory, Linux/vmlinuz, and initrd.img, but that unfortunately still didn’t work.
I will need to boot back into rescue mode, mount the server partition, and try to repair the boot partition once again - though this will have to be done tomorrow morning as it’s getting late now.
My question to the community would be - what is happening?
I am running on an OVH dedicated server, running 2 x 2TB HDD’s, in RAID1.
When I checked my /boot/ folder last time, it appeared some files were missing, when I compared them to my other CyberPanel install. Is the sudden reboot of the server causing the boot partition to corrupt? Or perhaps do I have a bigger problem at hand - failing disks?
I know this might not be the place to ask this, but I did see someone else had a similar issue on this form with their Ubuntu setup, where their boot partition vanished/corrupt. So I am hoping someone can help point me in the right direction with regards to what I need to look out for.
Other than the boot partition (/boot/) failing, I haven’t had any other issues with CyberPanel, things have been running smooth. I am a bit worried about loosing my data.
