SG-1100 requires interaction before completing bootup



  • Someone conveniently knocked out some power poles yesterday and when the power was restored, I was without internet. I could not access my SG-1100 via web-gui, so I connected via console. The screen was blank until I hit enter, and then there was a display of the usual bootup process. Further troubleshooting, I found that every time, it pauses at a specific moment, awaiting human interaction. This is highly inconvenient in the event of further power outages, reboots after upgrades, etc.

    Here' s a snippet of what is displayed prior to my necessary intervention:

    load_dn_sched dn_sched PRIO loaded
    load_dn_sched dn_sched FQ_CODEL loaded
    load_dn_sched dn_sched FQ_PIE loaded
    load_dn_aqm dn_aqm CODEL loaded
    load_dn_aqm dn_aqm PIE loaded
    

    That's it. Not even a prompt telling me to hit enter. I just do press enter, because it hangs right there.

    That's not an error, it's just console output from limiters loading.

    The real prompt/issue/error/etc would be above that. Paste a lot more of the console output.



  • Here's a screenshot that I took at the time. If you need more, I can reboot it and get more.

    Could it be the "Syncing OpenVPN settings . . . Enter Auth Password:" line? Maybe it's waiting for input from that?

    So your OpenVPN configuration is causing it to wait for a password before it starts. Maybe you have it set to user auth but didn't enter a password.

    You might try adding auth-retry nointeract; to the custom options, too
