Is this a french thing or just OVHCloud sheningans?
- You have Proxmox 7.4 running on OVHCloud dedicated server.
- Suddenly your server crashes one night and you get error on boot: Unable to locate IOAPIC for GSI -1
- You boot to rescue, and check lsblk
Everything looks well.. You can mount/chroot the data and LVM with:
mount /dev/mapper/lvm-data /mnt
and the system with
mount /dev/mapper/controller /mnt
Okay, proceed to unmount. Can backup if needed.
Proceed to open a ticket:
Hi, my server crashed recently, and I get this error on boot: Unable to locate IOAPIC for GSI -1
I have checked that the both disks show up and mount normally in rescue mode.
I have important data in server, so Im only asking what this error is and how to solve it and boot back into current system.
The server is running default Proxmox VE 7.4 template.
OVHCloud asks permission to check the issue via ticket.
No issue with hardware.. Okay back to square one.. reboot back to rescue and start taking backups.
All partitions gone after OVH intervention.
Did they just nuke every fucking thing there was? When I especially asked them to just check it. Or was there some kind of French - English language barrier? Or am I just missing something here and all data is fine despite all partitions are now gone from lsblk?
