Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

I found some answers in the Raspberry forums here - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=175630 Looks like booting from SD is still a possibility, so I'll plan to move forward with setting the OTP memory to allow USB booting on my Pi 3b. I wouldn't have a problem updating UUIDs in the ...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

Thanks. I had read through that article on USB booting, but what I still don't understand is if I set the one time programmable memory to enable booting from USB, can I still boot from SD if I wanted to (not saying that I would). I'm a little spooked by the OTP aspect since I have no experience with...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

Thanks @Joulinar. I'm glad to give this a try, but I'm curious about a couple of things I hope you might clarify. "let's copy the missing data cp -p -r dietpi_userdata /mnt/" - so the USB SSD will exist at / and the default location for userdata becomes /mnt/ right? Right now I'm using a 32GB SD car...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

This all worked well. Thank you! I’d like to only use my USB SSD for roots and user data, or possibly use SD for only booting. My hope would be to gain performance and stability. Right now my Plex database is on the SD and that can’t be great. Not sure what my path forward would look like to retain ...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

Thanks for your response. I've moved everything back to /mnt/dietpi_userdata . When trying to restart the service I get this: [email protected]:/mnt/dietpi_userdata/mysql/mysql# journalctl -n 100 Feb 21 21:50:12 DietPi systemd[1]: Starting MariaDB 10.1.44 database server...

Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

This is admittedly some user error going on, but I'm hoping I can recover from it smoothly. Right now my MariaDB service fails to run [email protected]:~# systemctl status mariadb ● mariadb.service - MariaDB 10.1.44 database server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mariadb.service; disabled; vendor pres...

[Request] Recommendations on hardware setup (and restore options)

I've got some hardware issues (I think) and would like to make some changes. I recently ran into problems with services not starting when booting my Pi 3B. I was periodically able to SSH into the Pi, but at other times it failed. Sometimes services would start, and sometimes they would not. I pulled...
