03:22<joey>Hi, I would like to get some assistance in troubleshooting my Linode. I was logged in to the web console and I noticed a spike in CPU usage. I was uploading a file and it was unusually slow. I then rebooted the server from the console. Somehow, it no longer responds to SSH!
03:22<joey>Any suggestions on what I can do?
03:23<grawity>connect to the web console again, and investigate your network configuration from the inside
03:24<grawity>(and next time if it becomes slow again, investigate CPU usage before rebooting)
03:28<joey>I am in the web console - weblish. Is there any tutorial I can read up on how to operate it? It doesn't look like a UNIX shell :-|
03:30<joey>It looks like the web console is not responding even, it's stuck at:
03:31<joey> Mounting FUSE Control File System... [ OK ] Mounted FUSE Control File System. [ OK ] Mounted /var/www/ [ 7.025443] random: crng init done [ 7.026205] random: 7 urandom warning(s) missed due to ratelimiting [ 35.960606] sd 2:0:2:3: [sdc] tag#0 abort [ 167.032612] sd 2:0:2:3: [sdc] tag#23 abort
03:33<grawity>lish is exactly what you'd get over a serial port, so it shows the usual stuff like kernel messages, systemd boot stuff
03:34<grawity>press Enter and you'll get a login prompt
03:34<grawity>("glish", meanwhile, is exactly what you'd get on the server's display/monitor)
03:34<joey>Believe it or not, Lish isn't responding. Enter does nothing
03:35<grawity>if you're getting disk errors from 'sd' on a linode, it *might* be a good idea to file a ticket
03:35<grawity>because it might mean the physical server is having problems
03:36<joey>Lish is stuck on: [ 484.526972] Not tainted 4.9.0-8-amd64 #1 Debian 4.9.130-2 [ 484.528143] "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this. [ 484.529137] fsck.ext4 D 0 683 679 0x00000000 [ 484.529836] ffff897d76970e80 0000000000000000 ffff897d7696c040 ffff897d7fc10 [ 484.536965] ffffffffbd211500 ffffa71cc049fc80 ffffffffbcc14219 ffff897d79fe0 [ 484.537900] 00ff897d79fea9c8 ffff897d7fc18980 ffff897d769280c0 ffff897
03:36<grawity>ah, so it's still booting
03:36<grawity>well, trying to do the boot-time filesystem check
03:36<joey>It takes such a long time to boot? It usually boots in 20 seconds or so
03:37<grawity>if it's having disk problems, yes
03:37<joey>That's what I am suspecting, it looks like a hard disk problem. I guess the filesystem crashed - and I was too cheap to opt for the backups :-| I'm screwed this time
03:38<grawity>"hard disk problem" is not even close to "the filesystem crashed"
03:39<grawity>it might very well mean some data has been lost, but, I dunno, open a support ticket, copy the lish boot output in there, and see if it'll get successfully migrated to another host maybe
03:39<grawity>is sdc a normal disk image or a "block storage" volume?
03:39<joey>Thanks for the suggestion. I'll do that now
03:39<joey>"sdc" is a block storage volume
03:40<grawity>could be network problems in the datacenter, then
03:40<joey> shows everything is fine though
03:44<joey>Hmm, it looks like nothing is lost - it's working fine now for some reason. Strange, really
04:01<joey>I am getting this: [ 1972.230454] [UFW BLOCK] IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=f2:3c:91:7c:4c:6f:84:78:ac:0b:f4:c1:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=40 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=62 ID=1117 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=51422 DPT=53 WINDOW=29200 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0
04:01<joey>Repeatedly, is this some sort of DOS attack?
04:04<joey>It's coming on different ports - looks like a portscan :-|

11:55<bl4ckbo7>hey, how are you guys?
11:57<millisa>73% of us are happy it is friday
11:57<bl4ckbo7>i wanted to assign an additional ip which i was given by Linode to my new Domain name, but on the same linode. how is it possible???
11:57<millisa>They've already approved the additional IP?
11:57<bl4ckbo7>yes they approved it and it's ready for use
11:58<millisa>Does it show on the Remote Access tab of the linode (using the old manager)?
11:58<bl4ckbo7>it's assigned to this domain name =>
11:59<bl4ckbo7>which resolves to the first IP's domain..
11:59<millisa>In the new manager it would show on the summary tab on the right side (It has an IP Addresses section and it'll have a '+1' if you have more than 1 IP)
11:59<millisa>or on the linode's 'Networking' tab
12:00<bl4ckbo7>am using the old manager console
12:00<bl4ckbo7>it doesnt show a +1 sign on my side
12:00<millisa>on the old manager, if you are looking at the Remote Access tab, there's a section for 'Public IPs'. Do you see the additional IP there?
12:01<bl4ckbo7>yes it's included right above the primary ip
12:01<bl4ckbo7>*it's placed
12:01<millisa>ok, so you just need to get it setup in the OS then?
12:01<bl4ckbo7>on the os side??
12:01<millisa>Did you look at this: ?
12:01<bl4ckbo7>not on the DNS manager??
12:01<bl4ckbo7>oh wait..
12:02<millisa>Unless I'm misunderstanding the question. Does the new IP ping/ Does it show up on the Linode from the OS's perspective?
12:04-!-thiras [~thiras@] has joined #linode
12:04-!-thiras is "Ant" on #debian #linode #tami
12:04<bl4ckbo7>sorry, come up again?
12:05<millisa>Is the additional IP configured in the OS?
12:09<bl4ckbo7>i dont think so
12:09<bl4ckbo7>here it's what ifconfig returns
12:09<bl4ckbo7>eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet netmask broadcast inet6 2600:3c00::f03c:91ff:fe45:4400 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x0<global> inet6 fe80::f03c:91ff:fe45:4400 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link> ether f2:3c:91:45:44:00 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 857917 bytes 201037765 (201.0 MB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0
12:09<bl4ckbo7>it's now showing the additional ip in place of primary ip
12:10<bl4ckbo7> replaces
12:11<bl4ckbo7>they all resolve to the same domain name. what's happening there??
12:13<millisa>well, that looks like the IP's are configured in the OS. you need to configure your web server to do different things with them if that was your goal.
12:13<millisa>(I'm surprised they gave you a second IP if it was just to have different websites)
12:13<bl4ckbo7>what could I have done??
12:14<bl4ckbo7>use different vhosts
12:14<bl4ckbo7>instead of ips?
12:14<millisa>yep. modern os's and browsers work just fine with multiple ssl sites on the same IP
12:14<Abi12>1 I.P, 1 Linode, and 100 websites is possible.
12:14<bl4ckbo7>thanks dearly
12:15<bl4ckbo7>lemme try my luck millisa

12:38<sweetfirekitsun>Anyone had their account terminated 20 minutes after created
12:41<millisa>I have not
12:41<sweetfirekitsun>I don't get it.
12:41<millisa>Call them and ask
12:41<sweetfirekitsun>Like they did all the standard stuff.
12:41<sweetfirekitsun>Took payment and everything.
12:42<sweetfirekitsun>Then just killed my account.
12:42<sweetfirekitsun>No reason whatsoever.
12:43<sweetfirekitsun>And have my phone company charge me an arm and a leg? No thanks.
12:46<dwfreed>you can use skype to call US toll free numbers
12:46<dwfreed>for free
12:46<sweetfirekitsun>Don't have Skype :/
12:46<dwfreed>you can sign up, it's free
12:47<sweetfirekitsun>And have Microsoft peering down my neck? Noo thanks.
12:47<dwfreed>must not be that important to you then
12:47<sweetfirekitsun>Nah, not really.
12:47<dwfreed>accounts cancelled for suspected fraud have the charges automatically refunded, fwiw, though banks don't like giving you money back, so it can take 3 to 5 days to get the money back
12:48<sweetfirekitsun>Like, I don't even get how it would be classed as suspected fraud tbh
12:49<sweetfirekitsun>It's just all a bit messy.
12:50<millisa>it isn't typically.
12:51<sweetfirekitsun>Like, It can't be because of my location, riiight?
12:52<dwfreed>there are many factors that go into the determination; location is one, but not the only one
12:52<dwfreed>given your IP address, that alone would not have done it
12:52<sweetfirekitsun>Like the email said about using VPN and a couple of other points.
12:53<sweetfirekitsun>None of which are applicable.
12:54<@mcintosh>sweetfirekitsun: hello
12:54<@mcintosh>hold on just a moment
12:56<@mcintosh>sweetfirekitsun: you should've received an email just now - you're good to go
12:56<millisa>!point mcintosh
12:56<linbot>millisa: Point given to mcintosh. (11)
12:56<@mcintosh>as dwfreed notes, anytime this happens the initial deposit is automatically refunded (note that signups via, the new system, do not require a deposit)
12:57<sweetfirekitsun>So what even flagged the bot in the first place?
12:58<@mcintosh>I can't really discuss the specifics of fraud prevention measures
12:58<@mcintosh>but, I'm sorry for the trouble
12:58-!-bl4ckbo7 [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
13:00<sweetfirekitsun>Fair play.
13:00<sweetfirekitsun>You guys reset my password?
13:00<csnxs>isFraud = randBool();
13:00<sweetfirekitsun>Can't seem to login :/
13:00<@mcintosh>sweetfirekitsun: try now
13:01<sweetfirekitsun>Fuck me, that was fast.

13:04<linbot>streuli: Point given to mcintosh. (12)
13:05<sweetfirekitsun>And now it's complaining that I need to talk to a "account administrator" before making a Linode instance :/
13:05<sweetfirekitsun>Wait, is the backend for this Discord?
13:05<@mcintosh>sweetfirekitsun: sorry, that bit was my fault
13:05<@mcintosh>should be okay now
13:06<millisa>sweetfirekitsun: if you mean the chat, it's irc
13:06<sweetfirekitsun>Allllrighty then.

13:15<sweetfirekitsun>Sooo, any reason why the webUI is still saying the bs about a admin aproval?
13:16<@mcintosh>sweetfirekitsun: might be cached - try logging in and out
13:16<@mcintosh>could also use the new control panel at
13:17<@mcintosh>if you aren't, that is

13:21<sweetfirekitsun>Waint, what?
13:21<@mcintosh>in IRC, you just type the persons name to notify them, e.g. "mcintosh" rather than "@mcintosh"

13:27<linbot>Each Linode comes with 1 public IPv4 address and 1 public IPv6 address. Additional IPv4 addresses are $ 1 per month, and require technical justification. A /64 or /56 of IPv6 can be routed to your Linode at no charge.
