We are using a Sophos UTM 9.3 HA Cluser on Hyper-V. The cluster worked fine, but after some time we noticed that the 2nd node had shut down. When we power on the virtual machine it boots like normal, but just after that we get the message "blogd: can not set console device to /dev/pts/0: Device or resource busy", and the UTM VM shuts down again.
Does anyone have an idea what causes this, and more importantly, how to fix it?

Nothing out of the ordinary as far as I can tell.

Hi, and welcome to the UTM Community! I would guess that this indicates a malfunctioning VM and that you should fire up a new one and reload from ISO. How much RAM, which subscriptions are you using and how many users do you have? Please insert a picture of the 'Configuration' page in 'High Availability'. Cheers - Bob
I'm also afraid the problem lies with the VM itself.
The VM has 8GB of RAM. Except Base Functionality we only use Network Protection. At the moment the highest amount of concurrent users is +-50.
Just an FYI,
I setup 2 new SG 230 Hardware units in HA mode about a month ago and just saw the secondary unit was off today.
When starting it back up I got the exact same error as you before it shut down.
When I logged in to the main unit I saw that the trial license expired.
I just had to load the new license and all has been fine.
Hi, and welcome to the UTM Community!
After expiration, only a few of the features other than Firewall, NAT and Routing are functional. If you didn't get notifications about the expiration, you likely need to correct your configuration in 'Notifications', possibly by adding a smart host on the 'Advanced' tab.
