    HS4 not working after power cycle

    I powered down my HS4 and moved it so I could install a Nortek HUSBZB-1 (I only moved the HS4, I did not change anything). Linux boots and I can sign in locally. I can ping the HS4 but I cannot connect to port 80 or port 22. When I log in locally I start Chrome and see the default HomeSeer screen but I cannot do anything. I can connect outbound to

    Is the HomeSeer service not running? How can I check from the Linux command line?

    Personally delay the startup of HS4 on my Ubuntu 20.04 box. Another Homeseer user had a similar issue and he put a check or wait for network connectivity before starting Homeseer.

    SSH (port 22) always works for me on restart of box. Are you logging in via root or user?

      I was able to start HomeSeer with ./go
      I also was able to connect with putty and sign in with root and HomeSeer. It is intermittent. How do I check the file system?


        What is intermittent?

        You can check the filesystem with the 'badblocks' command.

        First, get a list of filesystem mount points
        ls /dev/mmcblk0p*
        Then run badblocks for each listed entry:
        sudo badblocks -v /dev/mmcblk0p1
        sudo badblocks -v /dev/mmcblk0p2
        and so on. The final partition (likely p7) will take awhile, it's the main Linux filesystem disk.

        To check if HomeSeer is running,
        pgrep -af mono
        Will return a list of running mono processes. The main process is "HSConsole.exe" and any plugins start with "HSPI_". For example,
        727 /usr/bin/mono HSConsole.exe --log
        774 /usr/bin/mono /opt/HomeSeer/HSPI_BLLAN.exe
        816 /usr/bin/mono /opt/HomeSeer/HSPI_PUSHOVER.exe
        831 /usr/bin/mono /opt/HomeSeer/HSPI_Sonos.exe
        848 /usr/bin/mono /opt/HomeSeer/HSPI_ZWave.exe


          Thank you for the commands and your help. My partitions were sda, sda1 & sda3 but they all checked good. I feel like an idiot. My issue is that I moved the system too far from my AP. Even though the local system seemed slow, once I moved it back closer to the AP all is working again.

          Now I am looking to swap out the Z-wave USB device that came with it for Nortek HUSBZB-1 so I can support my CREE Connected A-19 lights directly from the HomeSeer and not through Lightify. Since it is going away and actually stopped working last week.
