So, I’ve used Home Assistant for a while now and I have it running on Nuc with a 500GB SSD for the last couple of years. Yesterday I noticed that it became unavailable (no web service, couldn’t even ping the IP) I went to look at the screen and a lot of stuff was scrolling by. I saw
Read-only file system in the messages so I figured the SSD was giving up. I tried the three-fingered salute (--
) and I saw a message like
Unable to execute shutdown binary! which seemed bad – the file system must have gone away or something. So, I held the power button to shut it off. When I turned it back on it fired right up and started working again (I created a full backup, just in case).
Can someone check out this screenshot and let me know if my judgement of SSD was correct?
Also, what’s the best way to troubleshoot a bad disk on Home Assistant OS? I feel completely ham-strung on debug methods with the thing – in this case, I couldn’t even get to the command prompt locally… the system was just spitting out tons of detail to the screen and didn’t seem to accept any keyboard commands other than --
which only failed to reboot.
I went out and bought a new SSD and I’m working on restoring the backup to the new one at the moment.
It has been running for a long time (1.5hrs) and the frontend is still unavailable. How can I check if it is stuck or still running?
