So I posted awhile back about getting an LSI card into IT mode. Managed to get through that fine and put the latest firmware on the card and finish my home server.
It’s a frankenstein monster made out of consumer parts that I had left over with a bunch of drives I’ve put in.
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
MBOARD: ASRock B450 Pro4 ATX AM4
RAM: 4 x Kingston ValueRAM 4 GB ECC Unregistered (ECC/EDAC actually works).
HDD: 8 x Western Digital Red 4 TB (raidz2)
HBA: LSI SAS9211-8I (flashed into IT mode)
GPU: Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 6670 (old GPU I have lying around since Ryzen doesn’t have iGPU’s)
Most times I’ve had issues with Linux it’s been an issue with the hardware rather than the software, but I’m having a hard time determining the cause.
Every 2-3 days I try to access my server and find it’s unreachable. No SSH, no ping response, nothing. Even tried to plug in a monitor to see if anything is displayed but I get no signal.
Only way to bring it back online is a hard reset. But then in two days it drops out again.
I would give some logs but I’m not sure where to look if I’m honest. Any idea how I can find the culprit of this?
