All data on local-lvm seems to be gone/wiped. Containers not starting.

Hi, I was notified that some of my containers had failed so I tried to restart them. They failed to restart so I rebooted the system and they still failed to start.

After examining the systemctl output it seems there is a 865 No such file error for all of the containers and VMs.

I then checked local-lvm and behold, it seems all of the data went poof. I don't understand how this could have happened.

I have also attached the log and it looks like it might have been a hard drive failure? The file contains all of the logs, there are no logs from before 22:10, which I find weird. EDIT: Probably because I rebooted duhhh. Well that was a mistake.


Proxmox 6.1-7

EDIT: Adding screenshots of the specific time of data loss. Seems to coincide with the restart of the system.

I needed to get the system back up so I had to wipe the drives, reinstall Proxmox, and repopulate the containers and VMs from backups.

My knowledge of LVM is still a bit thin so I didnt even think to check lvs and vgs. Noted for next time.

Smart attributes for the hard drives seem to be fine. I can't think of anything else to check now that the drives are wiped...
