      Description

      The problem that occurred recently seems to be back again:

      {code}
      sudo: pam_authenticate: Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info
      {code}

      Continuum appears to be down as a result. Are you able to apply the same fix from previously? Is there anything we can do to help avoid it again?

      I know a dist-upgrade is required once it stabilises - will that help?

          Thanks Gavin. Is there anything I can do to fix this in future, or changes I can make to prevent it? Or has your fix eliminated the problem?

          Hi Brett,

          Nothing you could have done, other than re-boot the VM.

          Its host, Erebus occasionally has issues and sends one or more of its VMs into r/o mode (damage control?).

          In any case, Erebus is the issue and needs looking at.

          Thanks Gav. It'd also be great if there was a way we could do a nagios check that detected it - since the current HTTP one passes (Continuum stays up), but the app is non-functional (since we lose MySQL when this happens). Do you have any suggestions?

          After discussion with Gav, we'll build a new VM more aligned with current practices. I'll move the Continuum install over, and we'll set it up behind an SSL reverse proxy as https://continuum-ci.apache.org/

          VM done, puppet managed. Still the proxy to sort but that can be done once bretts set up the application.
