Failed to Start Journal Service

Postby vazquezjm » 2017-08-30 20:21

Hi All.

Today, my Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) started refusing to boot. Everything started yesterday after a power outage.

When looking at the monitor output (I use it as a stand alone server), I noticed that the OS was not booting as it should, therefore it had no network and the some other services it used to have (OpenHAB, Samba, etc.). I can not access it from another computer in the LAN.

The messages I see on the screen:

Any help would be much appreciated.

I found this thread which suggests the /etc/machine-id may contain incorrect information.
https://community.online.net/t/c1-arch-not-starting-journal/2856/4

For anyone that comes across this thread.

I noted that /etc/machine-id had a random extra line in it. I deleted the file, and re-ran:
systemd-machine-id-setup

Then the journal started fine.


I hope this helps.
