But with a little persuasion and a faked email it might be possible to get some information from tech support

I doubt they'll be able to, a 6-10 character password encrypted with 128bit encryption is virtually uncrackable, so not much to worry about

Well at least people are now able to attempt to crack his passwords.

does it matter? we don't have much use for it anyway, sure we could try and guess his password to the manager but our chances aren't great unless his passwords are like 'password' or 'wackomoo'

Might want to hide your NICHANDEL from those emails.

Hi

The technicians replaced the USB cables, restarted the server and presto! There they were again all ready to use!

The intervention on ns361581.ovh.net is over.
Are you still unable to access the disks?

I don't know, but my data was not lost. Seems like the USB port was broken... or power supply or usb cable. i didn't get the answer from OVH because I didn't ask them what was wrong with my server

fozle, it's on ns361581 and it's happened to both USB drives.
I've created a ticket for this, you can check in your manager. I can't say at this point how come both your drives failed at the same time.

monkey56657's suggestion probably didn't work because our kernels are'nt modualr.

My two USB hdd's now give ls: reading directory .: Input/output error
nothing has changed, except that the server has been running for a week now.

The only info I could find was that USB drives shut off sometimes and Linux doesn't correctly power them on again. Something with allow_restart or so... I don't know if it, but if it does...


What can I do to
#1: Power on the drives again.
#2: Prevent it from happening again
I had the same problem two days ago.. it's critical failure, so create the ticket and send this failure to the OVH.

Try unloading usb kernel modules, then load them again.
