RESOLUTION

  1. Connect to the Unitrends system using an SSH capable client (e.g.: putty.exe) and authenticate as the user root.
  2. Verify that the storage allocated (below in dark red) is what you expect by executing this command:
    [[email protected] ~]# df -hP
    Filesystem                      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda2                       976M  262M  664M  29% /
    tmpfs                           7.8G     0  7.8G   0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda1                       239M   25M  201M  11% /boot
    /dev/sda5                       5.8G  1.1G  4.5G  20% /usr
    /dev/sda3                        50G  4.8G   42G  11% /usr/bp
    /dev/sda6                       3.9G  211M  3.5G   6% /var
    /dev/mapper/vg_state-lv_backup   12T  8.4T  3.7T  70% /_Stateless
  3. If it looks normal, then it is possible a hidden stop file is to blame. Execute this command to see if it exists:  ls -rlasth /usr/bp/lists.dir/.disable_rrc
  4. [[email protected] ~]# rm /usr/bp/lists.dir/.disable_rrc
    4.0K -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 100 Apr 18 12:36 /usr/bp/lists.dir/.disable_rrc
  5. If the results include details of the file, then it exists and must be removed. Execute this command to remove it: rm /usr/bp/lists.dir/.disable_rrc
    Confirm that you want to file deleted by typing y and pressing the Enter key.
  6. [[email protected] ~]# rm /usr/bp/lists.dir/.disable_rrc
    rm: remove regular file `/usr/bp/lists.dir/.disable_rrc'? y
  7. Restart the Unitrends Database...
    • Stop the database by executing this command: /etc/init.d/bp_rcscript stop
    • [[email protected] ~]# /etc/init.d/bp_rcscript stop
      Stopping Unitrends Agent...Success.
    • Start the database by executing this command: /etc/init.d/bp_rcscript start
    • [[email protected] ~]# /etc/init.d/bp_rcscript start
      Starting Unitrends Agent...
      Success.​
You should be able to access the Web Administrative Interface now.

TASKS

CAUSE: The file is placed in order to ensure a that a consistent state is maintained on the system. In some cases, when a disconnect in communications occur (latency or network disruption for example), the call to remove the file is not received/processed and the file remains.

The file can be removed if you see that the system is functioning from the command line interface.
