2.3.3 Reboot/Hang



  • Until yesterday, I had a 2.3.2 nano install running off of an SD card on a Zotac Zbox C323.  It was marginally stable, requiring a restart every week or so. I found this unacceptable, so I was trying to fix it. I tried up upgrade it to 2.3.3 and something went wrong, so I took the opportunity to reinstall pfSense onto an SSD (SanDisk Plus). I reloaded my config .xml from the nano install and everything seemed fine.

    Since then, the computer keeps either restarting or hanging. It could take 30 minutes or it could take almost all night. Sometimes it reboots itself, sometimes I have to reboot it manually. I can't find anything in any of the logs in /var/log. The webConfigurator is not offering to view crash dumps like mentioned in https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Obtaining_Panic_Information_for_Developers.

    Prior to the attempted 2.3.3 upgrade and transition to pfSense (amd64 full-install) on the SSD, it was stable for days at a time. Way prior to this, maybe 6 months or more, it was 100% stable on another, older SSD. That drive failed and I had been running the nano version since then.

    Any thoughts? I'm certainly not an expert, but I can google like crazy.
