my 5-year-old-mybookliveduo freezes after startup and the reset button to restart device is not working.
After a hard power on/off the device is starting and I’m able to login using http ui and/or ssh.
In UI I can see that status of disks is ok (green LED) until system freezes again (still green LED).
From network perspective the box can be pinged until next freeze.
DHCP is not used and I already changed my static IP.
Using SSH in this small period I’m able to check /var/log/messags but there were no visible errors.
Now the worst-case for a NAS occured and I’m not able to backup my data from NAS
My next steps may be
- to check network behaviour isolate the box from ‘normal’ network; directly connect to a linux system via cross-over cable or a layer-2- firewall - no switches, access router, windows 10 systems shares, media receiver whatever …
- unplug one internal disk to create a backup of my data
- factory reset
Before I start doing the hard way…
Any advice what can be checked or changed ?
