Sophos HA Configuration - After reboot one node says "Sophos Protection" on Display...no second in HA visible

Hello,

i'm fighting with my two SG430 nodes. I've shut down the slave and afterwards the master per web console. Then i booted the slave first (Does it matter?) and then the master second.

Now the old slave is master and working.  Apparently the second node "hangs" as i only see "Sophos protection" on the display. Also when pushing the four buttons does not change the display. The only led powered on is "Int". The other stay "grey" but where shortly blinking while the device was powered on.

In my Log i see the following information:

2020:10:14-14:05:28 node2 ha_mode[29271]: calling check
2020:10:14-14:05:28 node2 ha_mode[29271]: check: waiting for last ha_mode done

Does anyone know this problem?

  • Ok,

    after some trial and error to find out that sophos uses modern HDMI and NOT VGA  and that a Display Port cable is not a HDMI cable (-:

    i've finally managed to go connect my sophos to a monitor. Here i saw the follwoing error:

    fsck failed for at least one filesystem (not /)

    Please repair manually and rebboot.

    The root file system is already mounted read-write.

    Attention: Only CONTROL-D will reboot the system in this maintenance mode, shutdown or reboot will not work. [CONTROL-D didn't work at all by the way!!].

    Give root password for maintenance or type Control-D to continue:

    The next task was to find out, which button corresponds to my german character as the connected connected keyboard got the "ENGLISH" layout. So after this i get logged in to the shell finally.

    Here i typed:

    touch /forcefsck

    and rebooted the machine. Then it synced with my new master (Which was the slave before) and now everything looks fine although the machine is stil syncing (10 minutes or so).

    I also must add that when my slave got the master in the first place i configured in HA also the old slave to be the "prefered node". And then did the steps above.
