Hi list, just putting a new server through its automatic shutdown triggered by the UPS / apcupsd. All worked faultlessly, including powering up when power came back on to the UPS.
So then I go to log in and get “POWER FAILURE” followed by “Authentication failure” – this is on the console
via SSH I just get “POWER FAILURE” and the SSH connection drops. So I guess the, log everyone out and stop further logins instruction is still lurking around somewhere.
How do I regain control of my server?? Does this mean I need to boot with a rescue disk and edit some file somewhere??
How do I prevent this re-occurring, after a perfect shutdown and restart, only to get stymied here. Google has lots of help for dealing with various corruptions due to power failure – not the case here, the POST, grub, init restart all look just fine. TIA
