I have Netgate 6100’s running pfsense 22.05 and Standard release adam:ONE
I am facing an issue where the box will show offline in the dashboard and the primary symptom is users at the site no longer can resolve internal DNS.
Digging into it this is what I am seeing:
sockstat |grep anmuscle returns no results
service anmuscle.sh status returns that the service is running
service anmuscle.sh stop runs without error but the service does not stop
service anmuscle.sh restart returns 96919 another instance already running
running the command “top” I do not see anmuscle running like I have at sites that are functional.
So far the only fix has been to reboot the firewall which is disruptive to the site.
Is there a better way to force the service to stop?
It sounds like the muscle didn’t delete it’s PID file when it crashed.
You can run the command rm /var/run/anmuscle.* to remove lock and PID files after which it should be OK to start again.
Also what version are you running there @Chris.Kraydich.Indie as you may want to try upgrading to Rapid Release to see if it solves the crashing issue. adamone-upgrade test to do so.
@atw Thank you that was the last breadcrumb I needed. I was able to remove the PID file and start the service
I do have one firewall running rapid release and just had the same issue. I just upgraded it to the RR version 4 hours ago so I will continue to monitor. I just got notification that 23.01 is now available so I will review the release notes and do some testing on our Development firewall.
