Pfsense hang on boot

  • A few weeks ago had a power outage and my pfsense box went down. I haven't had time to really mess with it until today. Anyhow, it is hanging on boot at "Generating RRD Graphs" I've power cycled the box over a dozen times and have the same results. Is there a fix or am I hosed?

  • If it gets that far you're probably not totally hooped.

    You might try booting to single user and force a fsck to verify nothing is mangled with the fs.
    Another option is to manually wipe the RRD data in case some existing data is causing grief.

    Lastly, make sure you have a backup of config.xml and do a clean reinstall from scratch.

  • I have already done the fsck -y multiple times.  I am assuming by wiping the rdd data I can remove everything in /var/db/rrd is that correct?

  • I got it working by wiping the contents of /var/db/rrd

  • Glad you got it figured out.

    Probably some mangled data in one or more RRD files leftover from the power outage.
