[Skyline] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Jump to solution

Hi Guys,

I got a Skyline appliance 1.4.0 Build 9405761. It was working perfectly and suddenly stopped working for no reason. Checking the booting process I can see the following:

I tried the following with no luck

Hit SHIFT+UP or SHIFT+PGUP in the console and you'll see that a device needs to be checked for errors. Put your skyline root password in and then type "fsck -y /dev/log_vg/log" and it'll do a file system check.  After that, just reboot the appliance and you'll be back up.  If you're not, check the output again for any other mounts that need to be checked and perform the same.

Any idea will be highly appreciated.

Hello,

Welcome to communities,

As per the description Skyline appliance services are not starting. Request you to perform the steps mentioned below:

1. Check the disk space available on the appliance.

    Commands to check:

     df -h

     Check if the root or any other directories are consuming 100% space.

     If the drive is filled, it would be the auth.log which would be consuming maximum space.

     du -sh  or du -h

     Should give the details about the file size.

     Run this command by getting in to all the directories.

     /log/var/skyline

2. Upgrade the appliance to Skyline version 2.0.0.2

Thank you for the reply.

I was in fact a storage problem. I deleted some log files from root partition and space problem was fixed.
