- Cause: unstable connection between Storage- and Bladeserver.
- Result: root filesystem readonly and DMA time-outs. VPS is practically unreachable but still reachable through the terminal in your control panel.
- Fix: force the file system to not enable readonly mode. This can be done in the file /etc/fstab
By default (depending on the used distribution) it is set to errors=remount-ro. By changing this to errors=continue you prevent this issue from occurring. If your configuration is set to defaults we also advise you to change it to errors=continue. The entry in /etc/fstab looks as follows:
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=0bd87d9b / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
