Connection keeps dropping

My server keeps dropping connection. When I try to access my server using the IP address it won't let me see the shares. When I try to access my dashboard it won't connect. If I shutdown and restart the server I'm able to access it for a brief time before it disconnects again. An interesting thing i...

Permission needed to copy files...

Good evening. I had a issue with a hard drive failing and was unable to boot my server. I got that issue corrected but now have a couple of additional issues. I have two questions: 1. When I try to copy a file (i.e., movie) from my PC to my Movie directory on my Amahi server, I'm getting a message s...

Adding hard drive

Good morning. I am adding two additional 2tb hard drive to my amahi server. I have the greyhole UI installed. When I access Amahi, I can see them listed as /dev/sdb and /dev/sde. They aren't showing under Greyhole drive pooling. What do I need to do to get these "seen" by Amahi and Greyhole, so I ca...

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

First I wanted to thank you for all your help with this issue so far. I've determined which drive is bad. I've commented it out of /etc/fstab and physically removed it from my server. I've seen instructions on how to add a drive, but how do I actually "replace" a drive and get it back in the pool, c...

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

OK. I commented out the extra drives and we're making progress! Now my server boots. I can access my server on my network. The control panel show it is online. My folders are there but I'm not seeing any data (which would make sense). I would assume that one of the drives is bad. What are my next st...

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

Did reset the root password. Still not able to boot. Since I won't have my drive layouts, how would i rebuild without losing data after a fresh install?

Thanks for all the help so far.

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

No I didn't. Simply turned off the server to move it to a different location and ever since have had this problem. If I install Amahi from scratch, how would I rebuild by data and greyhole drives without losing my data, since i can't get a print out of the information now using your migration guide?...

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

Using Amahi 11. I can't get to a login. Keeps indicating it wants to boot to Emergency mode and to hit enter. Hitting enter just goes into a loop that says cannot open access to console and the root account is locked and to press enter to enter Emergency mode. Concerned that I will loose all my data...

Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

I upgrade to the current version of Amahi about a month ago. Everything was working fine. I turned off my server today to move it to a different location and not get the error "cannot open access to console. Root account is locked". I have not access to the server for my files or to use as DHCP/DNS ...

Can't edit dnf.conf

I've install the Plex media server manually per the wiki instructions. I'm trying to edit the dnf.conf file per the instructions but everytime I do i get a permssion denied message.

I've logged on as root using the sudo su - command.

Any help to get this edited would be appreciated.

Thank.s
