SEL won't restart on power restore

My SEL used to restart automatically after a power outage returns power to the SEL.

But I just discovered it no longer does so. Anyone know why this has happened or what controls the auto restart?

Pretty sure that's a setting in the hardware BIOS. That's not something I would expect to change suddenly though; odd. Contact our support folks for help with that.

I should have added that it happened after my SEL had another of it's gmail caused HS3 crashes. I really need to do something about using another email system.

However, this time when I turned the power off and on as I usually do, it wouldn't boot up.

I connected a screen to check what was going on and there was a disk error. First time I've had that occur. Fixed that, then it reported mono-sgen had stopped unexpectedly. I assumed that it was related to the disk error. Rebooted several times after that and it looked fine.

Next I tried turning the power off then on, and that is when I discovered that the SEL was not restarting automatically.

Thanks for your pointer anyway. It's fixed now.

Hope the disk error stays away and is not a sign of a deteriorating SSD.

In Linux you can force a disk check while it is booting or boot up with a USB / ISO disk checking disk which will do an external check of the SSD.

Thanks for the pointer Pete. So I take it you permanently leave the USB ISO disk plugged in as a fail safe?

Where can I get the ISO file?

No.

A bootable USB / ISO is only utilized for repair of the main hard drive and only if needed.

It just boots up to either a wintel or Linux desk top with disk repair utilities.

This is a last resort fix if forcing a disk check doesn't fix the hard drive.

Here is my favorite that I have used recently.

Boot-Repair-disk

Using Linux/Windows tools you can write the ISO to a USB stick. I have not burned a CD / DVD in many years now.

In Linux it is a bit different. You configure a forced disk check in the boot sequence where as it checks the disk before booting the OS (or mounting the hard drive).

Great! Thanks for the tips Pete.
