Made suricata change box died need help understanding…...



  • changed suricata to inline and after save got locked out, well not locked out so much as the box now refuses to pass traffic and i cannot get back in. The box reboots i get main splash screen it pings for a few seconds while booting then stops. After bootup completes usb keyboard stops responding and no other access. Anything i can do? If not i will reinstall from scratch and validate not a hardware issue.



  • ok i have access to recovery mode, can anyone assist with how to unload or keep suricata from starting (via cli) so i can validate if that was the cause.



  • well patience wasnt a virtue here, reloaded and back to normal for now. Just need to figure out exactly what i did to gum and since i am not taking backups yet since i am still learning this has been a good experience reconfiguring everything :-). Glass half full for sure….....
