I have energy saver setting enabled for power schedule. Each night from 2AM to 8AM my system suppose to shutdown or hibernate, what ever the case may be. Lately (at least three times this month), I noticed that my system is completely offline (none of the shares / apps work) and upon a visual troubleshooting, I keep finding the same message on the LCD: “System is shutting down”. I tried using a power button to get the system to shutdown/reboot, but it was fully unresponsive. Only unplugging a power cable and plugging it back in would bring the system back online.
I’ve seen some mentions on factory restore / firmware reflash, but I do not wish to loose the contents of my RAID 5 and I have nowhere convenient to backup 10+ TB of data contained therein.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Regular logs showed nothing of note, I’ve turned on extended logging and will update this post shout the “extended” shutdown occur again.
P.S. A quick followup: Upon enabling Extended Logging within Utility settings, system notified me that a reboot is needed. It has been stuck offline with “Rebooting” message for over an hour until I was forced to do a power cycle.
P.P.S. I am using the latest firmware version 2.30.165, and have not really had issues like these until after the update.
