The problem I'm having is that everything will be working just fine. I can reboot, shut it down and power off the unit and it will boot without any problems but sometimes it won't boot back up at all. it never gets an ip address. Once this occurs it's dead. it'll boot ok from the rescue flash usb but not the hard drive. I can't do anything with it until I re-make the boot partition and tar the file system back on. this has happened probably 15 times. I tried reloading uboot in the NAND several times.
I tore down and rebuilt the partitions on the hard drive then reloaded the O/S, set it up, and for several days it worked perfectly until last night when I tried to reboot it from a cold start. and yes I used tune2fs -L "rootfs" to label the boot partition.
I looked at the logs in the /var/logs directory on the HD. The best I can tell the last log entry is for the last time that I shut it down. So I'm assuming that uboot is not seeing the hard drive for some reason (corruption maybe? i generally give it enough time to spin down the HD before removing power). I tried to use netcat but most of the time I can't get it to work.
I don't understand what is going on with it. Help!!!!!!!
