I’ve had my PR4100 “Enable Auto Update” setting to true, thinking that this was the best way to ensure that I always had the latest possible FW installed on my NAS. But since I bought it (feb -19), I’ve always experienced that the NAS gets stuck on “Rebooting” after the actual upgrade, leaving the NAS more or less in a hung state. I cannot reach it, not by https and not through SSH. I know this isn’t a new problem, I’ve seen many threads about it - which makes it even worse I think.
The solution is to press and hold the power button on the front of the NAS to power it off forcefully, wait until disks and fans have all stopped and then press the power button again to power it up. This works, but It always feels like some kind of gamble, knowing that this cannot be really good for my system in the long run.
I am always hoping that “This issue is probably fixed in this FW release”, but so far - Nope! Still the same issue. I’ve now disabled the Auto Update option (in the ‘Settings’ -> ‘Firmware update’ settings menu) so that I can choose when to update the NAS FW “manually”, when I’m home and have the ability to toggle the power.
If someone else have had this issue, but found/heard about any fix for this, please share
