Ubuntu VM updated and wouldnt restart, used recovery mode, now need help
Posted on 2013-11-26
We have a lone Ubuntu 12 VM that our dev team use, they had run the system updates which then required a reboot but left it.
I then was the lucky person who had to shut the VM down as they wanted to extend a Virtual disk, upon shutting this down it got stuck so had to hard power it off and then it got stuck booting up, it look as though some kind of Kernel update has been done,
We run recovery Mode and this got the VM back up and running, I now need to understand if running the recovery mode has permanently rolled it back (similar to a Windows Last Known Good) or if when we restart it will try and use the new updated files again
On a secondary note it would also be useful ti understand
A) who / when the updates were run.....is there a log file with this detail in?
B) Whats stopped the VM from booting, is there an equiveilent of the Windows Event Log
As you may have guessed i'm focused on Wintel and have just been landed with this Linux issue so i'm a bit of a novice.
