I’ve been using my instance pretty regularly, and asked for it to not be shelved back during the big summer shelving. I was using it last week with no problem.
Today I’m trying to use it and it’s shelved - why has this happened please? I’ve selected the “unshelve” option but now it just says its status is “error” (though it does also say it’s “unshelving”, see screenshot below).
I really need this instance - it’s my only one and has literally all my PhD data and code on it (backed up elsewhere, but I can’t face setting up another instance and having to transfer TBs of data onto it, get all the tools I need to work, etc…). Please help me get it working again, and protected from random shelving in the future?
Not sure if it’s OK to share the IP address here but can do if that will help.
Just one more problem now - one of my volumes (with the majority of my recent work, some unbacked up) has unmounted whilst it was shelved. When I tried to remount a volume which had been unmounted once before (last year sometime), I lost all my data. How do I go about remounting this volume (screenshot below) without losing everything please?
I have just noticed some of my volumes are different types to others: two are gpfs, and two (including one that I’m not using yet) are ceph. One of each stayed mounted when the instance was shelved, and the one which won’t remount now is gpfs. Could that have anything to do with it? They were all working before it was shelved though…
I kept playing around, as I figured it was me doing something stupid. And it was! The volume I actually wanted to attach was sdb, not sdc (something funny has gone on with my volume/dev naming at some point…). The volume in question is now remounted and my data is all back!
