Upgrade debian et lost network

Rédigé par gorki Aucun commentaire

Problem :

I manage a dedicated server in OVH and I upgrade my debian from jessie to buster. Upgrade works quite well (it seems...) and I try to restart.

Server reboot fails as unreachable, fortunately OVH rescue mode allows me to login.

I check error log and first lost myself in RAID error message, but it was more simple than that.

Solution :

I check the /etc/network/interfaces file, it was OK

I check the logs files, clean, reboot, check again, still OK except that network was unreachable for named.

I finally remember that Debian switch to systemD in latest version so I tried to create system networking file manually : too complicate, it was not working.

In rescue mode, you can access your files as a mounted point so usual commands as systemctl does not work.

The solution was to chroot a shell :

  1. mkdir /mnt/md2
  2. mount /dev/md2 /mnt/md2
  3. chroot /mnt/md2 bash
  4. systemctl enable networking

And it works...

Now I have to check all other system to be sure that everything is working...

Begining with :

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get clean

sudo apt-get autoremove

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo dpkg --configure -a
