Set up NC Box successfully, then migrated it to it’s final location.
For that I SSH’d “shutdown -h now”, moved the box, plugged in … nothing !
Now I’m desperately trying to safe 2 days work, but the box does not do anything (just red LED).
Pi is okay (boots on SD card of another PI), plugging SD into another Pi does nothing - so I guess the SD is dead or I accidentally killed some boot up stuff …
I can mount SD on a Linux desktop …
Any suggestions ? Aynthing I can check on the SD through an editor ?
Ideas welcome !!!
Welcome to the world of PIs booting from fragile read-write media
Connect the PI via HDMI to a TV and boot.
I guess you will only see a eainbow screen.
Is this is true, you need a fresh image on the SD.
If dou are lucky only the filesystem is gone and it will work. Or you will also need a new SD + image
Only way to get around is to make the SD a readonly filesystem.
Had connected the Pi to HDMI, screen turns black at start (no rainbow screen) but no cli messages popping up …
Does anyone know where on the 1 TB disk I can find the data for rescue and later reuse after reinstallation ?
@manankanchu try this:
If it helps, this is what I've provided with my backup image: Details on how to restore the dd *.bin file: NOTE This image backup will format the attached PiDrive to a fresh install of Nextcloud. To maintain the version previously installed prior to the sdcard failing, follow the instructions on the below link, changing the target drive back to /dev/sda2 Username and password are the default: u: ubuntu p: ubuntu Change this as soon as is convenient: $ sudo adduser your…
The first github link will show you how to restore the image, the NOTE under it states how to configure it to not overwrite the data on the disk after a restore.
Thanks for your suggestion … I reinstalled the whole thing, everything worked fine - rebooted and failed again - so I decided this whole Nextcloud Box thingy is by far too unreliable so I threw it into the trash bin …
Thanks guys for your support !!
Lol, where are you located? If within Europe I’ll cover postage if you’d like to send it to me… better than the bin
