hp microserver gen10 + hp nc360t + dsm 6.2.2-24922 = unstable?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else experienced this?

I've got an HP Microserver gen10, an HP NC360T NIC and DSM 6.2.2-24922. Ever since the upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2 the system will drop of off the network about once a week. Sometimes when adding large torrents to the download station (but maybe that's only coincidence).


Is there any way to diagnose this? Any system logs besides the Log Center?


The only abnormality I'm able to see in the Log Center is that LAN 1 goes down and receives a 169.254.xxx.xxx IP, like the cable was disconnected. It stays like that indefinely.

So, apparently it happens because the network card stops/resets and the dhcp-client can't (or won't) start again.


Relevant portion from /var/log/messages:


2019-05-15T13:23:52+02:00 diskstation [228138.340179] init: dhcp-client (eth0) main process (8937) killed by TERM signal
2019-05-15T13:23:52+02:00 diskstation dhcp-client: stopped on eth0
2019-05-15T13:23:52+02:00 diskstation dhcp-client: started on eth0
2019-05-15T13:23:52+02:00 diskstation synonetd: net_default_gateway_set.c:34 failed to set default gateway


Found in /var/log/kern.log:


2019-05-15T17:47:58+02:00 diskstation kernel: [15716.768357] e1000e 0000:02:00.0 eth0: Reset adapter unexpectedly


After some Googling (especially this discussion), the solution would seem to be an upgrade of the e1000e drivers and/or disabling ASPM (PCIe Active State Power Management). I've added "pcie_aspm=off" to common_args_3615 in my grub.cfg. We'll see how it goes.
