VirtualBox VM running Ubuntu 14.04 (dedicated to running Event Store)
Event Store 3.9.3, projections enabled
ES was running fine - we had written lots of events across multiple streams. At some point the host machine (Windows 10) was rebooted by IT - not entirely sure what happened to the VM at that point (i.e. whether a proper shutdown signal was sent or whether it was a hard reset - whatever VirtualBox does by default)
When we restarted the VM, Event Store no longer allowed us to log in to the admin site (we were using the default admin:changeit creds as it is a dev environment). We got the orange footer warning: “Server does not exist or incorrect user credentials” supplied.
Closer inspection of the running VM revealed:
- eventstore service is running
- both standard log and error log being constantly written to (despite no ongoing usage of the system from external)
The standard log appeared to be full of messages that appeared to indicate that the projections system was simply initializing over and over.
The error log was written to every few seconds. This is my colleague’s machine and I won’t have access for an hour or two but here are a couple snapshots of the error log:
