Self Inflicted Fail

    Hmm, forum went down? Copy and pasted from earlier…..

    So I updated my test box (32bit Nano) as soon as I saw that snapshots were up and it never came back up after rebooting. Possibly I would have done a better job of it had I not been battling to stay awake at 3AM and using a tablet whilst in bed!  ::)
    This morning I hooked up a console cable and immediately saw what had happened. I don't think any of these things are 2.1.1 specific but maybe worth noting them here.

    The box was waiting at the assign interfaces dialogue. That was because it had previously had a USB wifi device attached and although I had disabled the interface it was still assigned. It seems like there should be an option to remove the offending interface here because the only way I got past that was to re-attach the USB NIC, once I'd retrieved it from the pile of stuff it ended up beneath.

    After successfully rebooting and reconfiguring my interfaces I had some error in the logs. Most concernin of which was this:

    php: rc.bootup: The command '/usr/local/sbin/dhcpd -user dhcpd -group _dhcp -chroot /var/dhcpd -cf /etc/dhcpd.conf -pf /var/run/ bridge0' returned exit code '1', the output was 'Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Server 4.2.5-P1 Copyright 2004-2013 Internet Systems Consortium.

    The LAN interface is assigned as and the DHCP server is set to use that subnet but looking at Status: Interfaces: or ifconfig it was actually on
    This turns out to be an address I assigned to a virtual IP (IP alias) and forgot about. Not sure how LAN came to be using it as the primary address though.  :-
    Easily solved but doesn't seem right.

    I saw a number of RRD related errors inluding:

    php: rc.bootup: rrdtool restore -f '/var/db/rrd//wan-traffic.xml' '/var/db/rrd//wan-traffic.rrd' failed returning 1.
    ```and similar.
    Some "/var: write failed, filesystem is full" and some "ERROR: Incompatible file version, detected version . This is not supported by the version 0003 restore tool." errors.
