Configuratio lost when server restarts

Beitrag von mikel99 » 16. Sep 2019, 13:59

Hi,

I was testing Lights-Out for QNAP server qhen I notived that after a reboot of the server the configuration is lost.

I had everything installed on the server (QNAP QTS 4.4.6.1050 - Intel x64) plus a couple of consoles on other PCs.
I had it running for several days and was specially interested in the time graph (to see when other PCs were up and running, monitor my TV and XBOX...). Also saw that sleep/resume events were working properly.

Yesterday I restarted my QNAP Server (just because I wanted to try it)... and the configuration for Lights-Out was lost!
I reapplied all of it (start form scratch looking for devices on the network from the console) and left it running for a couple hours. Then restarted the QNAP Server and evertyhing was gone again.

It looks like Lights-Out is storing its configuration files in a volatile directory...

Thanks!

Ok, after further testing (stopping and starting from appcenter) I saw that it seems to work... so I had a look at the logs... It looks like during the shutdown process "status" returns it's still running so it does not copy the settings.

I changed the timeout from 4 to 14 and and voila! It works!

I have several "heavy" apps running like "Container Station", so it could be that during the shutdown process the load is so heavy that a bigger timeout is needed to actually stop Lights-Out.

Great app! keep up the good work!

Thanks for your feedback!
I will increase the time to prevent a loss of configuration data.
