After power outage, settings not quite right - 2 bugs

  • Hi all,

    I am running pre2.1.1, and found the following bug:

    After a power outage, I noticed my pfsense box didn't come back up properly. Dhcp wasn't working nor was the network bridge I had set up. I couldn't get back to the GUI so first tried a restore from backup at the console, but that didn't change anything, so did a default settings reset, followed by a restore from backup XML.

    This seemed to fix the issue, however I lost my snort rules settings, despite flagging in the backup restore module that I wanted settings from packages stored.

    Guessing there are two bugs here.

    Not likely a 2.1.1 bug. Power outage might have caused some filesystem corruption but that's not something we can avoid in every possible case.

  • (dumb question) Would turning off write cache help?

  • Not a dumb question.
    Yes it would help if you have write cache without battery :)

  • Well could it please be implemented as a gui option then? - because it could save a few people some issues.

  • It is alredy is.
    Just use the system tuning page.
