Connection refused after reboot

Tue Feb 12, 2019 4:41 pm

Hello,
I am running a RPi and booting from an SSD.
Everytime i ask it to reboot from command prompt is says "connection refused" when i try to reconnect.
I need to disconnect to power to be able to connect.
It feels like the same problem I hade with a HDD that did not spin up..
any suggestions?

SSH will say that when the server is indeed dead. It failed or it wasn't started (boot failed?)
Do any other service work?
Can you hook a monitor, and see what goes on?

You could try

Code: Select all

ssh -v <ipaddress>
to get more info out of ssh
