Hey,
I've been going about a year without any maintenance. My last thread was here where I did a server update.
OmniOS was a fresh install of 151038, Napp-it was a fresh install, and I'm using 21.01b9.

A few weeks ago I was no longer able to connect to my Napp-it device.
From my mac I can ping 192.168.50.2
In finder I cannot access the server smb://192.168.50.2 - error connecting to server
From my mac I cannot access Napp-it via web browser http://192.168.50.2:81 - connection timeout

I connected a local terminal to my Napp-it server and see the error message
client application [-1]() registered 2 identical instances o service tyrion._adisk._tcp.local. port 445
mDNSCoreReceiveResponse: Received from 192.168.50.2:5353 31 tyrion._adisk._tcp.local. TXT dk0=adVN=TimeCapsul.adV=0x82
mDNSCoreReceiveResponse: Resetting to Probing 20 tyrion._adisk._tcp.local. SRV 0 0 445 tyrion.local

Since I cannot login via web, is there anything I can try to fix Napp-it locally from the command line?

I have tried :
/etc/init.d/napp-it stop
/etc/init.d/napp-it start


and
/etc/init.d/napp-it restart

what is the output of
ps axw
/var/web-gui/data/tools/httpd/napp-it-mhttpd


- napp-it start or restart is the usual option to restart
- the mdns/Bonjour message cannot hinder napp-it to start

Thank you for helping me, Gea.
I had tried shutting down my server, rebooting it, I thought everything. Asking Napp-it to restart did not work.

Out of pure bad luck, we had a power failure the other night. Everything in my house went dead. Even the computers that were connected to UPS eventually shut down when the batteries drained. When the power came back on, I was able to log into Napp-it from my web browser. So some good luck.

However, I cannot access smb://192.168.50.2 from my mac Finder via CMD+K (connect to server.)
In my web browser I have connected to Napp-it and checked that SMB/CIFS service is online, and tried to restart the SMB/CIFS server.

Also, I fail to connect via terminal using
$ ssh root@192.168.50.2
I have verified that 'AllowUsers root' is enabled under Services SSH.

I am currently running version 21.06a, however I do not recall updating to this version since last summer when I was on 21.01b9.
Can Napp-it auto update?

SMB on a Mac:
OSX 12 changed SMB behaviour. A fix in Illumos is underway. In the meantime you can use cifs://192.168.50.2

SSH:
Should work. On a current OmniOS there are some security OpenSSH problems fixed what hinders older SSH clients to connect. Check for a newer SSH client.

Autoupdate
I would only update under user control.
