Auto reboot



  • Hi all,
    My Pfsense is rebooting every day at 9:16pm, I already looked at cron but there are no tasks related to this. I was wordering if someone have any ideia about the source of this issue.

    Some details about version:
    2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (amd64)
    built on Wed May 15 18:53:44 EDT 2019
    FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p10

    Best,



  • What hardware are you running this on?

    Jeff



  • Hi Jeff,
    Here you are the infos I got from GUI.

    System Hyper-V Virtual Machine
    Netgate Device ID: fb5ad593aeea13cda020
    BIOS Vendor: American Megatrends Inc.
    Version: 090006
    Release Date: Wed May 23 2012
    Version 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (amd64)
    built on Wed May 15 18:53:44 EDT 2019
    FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p10
    CPU Type Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 v3 @ 2.40GHz
    AES-NI CPU Crypto: Yes (inactive)



  • so it's a virtual machine...
    could be a cron on the hyper-v if you didn't find anything on pfsense



  • Hi Kiokoman,
    I am not linux expert, so please sorry if I write something with no sense.

    I login in linux prompt and type "crontab -e" and I do not see any records there.

    In Psense GUI cron service, I saw this:

    1,31 0-5 * * * root /usr/bin/nice -n20 adjkerntz -a
    1 3 1 * * root /usr/bin/nice -n20 /etc/rc.update_bogons.sh
    1 1 * * * root /usr/bin/nice -n20 /etc/rc.dyndns.update
    */60 * * * * root /usr/bin/nice -n20 /usr/local/sbin/expiretable -v -t 3600 virusprot
    30 12 * * * root /usr/bin/nice -n20 /etc/rc.update_urltables
    1 0 * * * root /usr/bin/nice -n20 /etc/rc.update_pkg_metadata
    0 0 * * * root /usr/local/sbin/squid -k rotate -f /usr/local/etc/squid/squid.conf
    15 0 * * * root /usr/local/pkg/swapstate_check.php

    When you say "cron on the hyper-v" it means that I shoud look at hyper-v settings ?

    Thank you.



  • windows could do something wrong at that hour to pfsense or yes check hyper-v settings

    and it is FreeBSD not linux, don't make ppl hear you 😂



  • ops....sorry =)

    I am not sure the source could be hyper-v because the last hardware reboot it was july, 31, only pfsense is reboot.

  • maybe it is hyper-v issue.

  • Netgate Administrator

    Does it reboot because of some event? Do the logs show it rebooting or shuting down? Or do they just show it running then suddenly booting as though it was hard power cycled?

    The logs immediately before Sep 9 21:16:47 syslogd kernel boot file is /boot/kernel/kernel should show that.

    I assume no other VMs are rebooting at that time?
