OpenVPN doesn’t update all that often and since my last update there was only a 0.0.1 version difference, but as I was in the upgrade mode anyway so away I went.
The first node in my OpenVPN cluster upgraded without issue, it’s just a simple matter of logging in as the root user and executing two commands:
dpkg -i openvpn-as-1.8.4-Ubuntu8.i386.deb
An easy enough process on the first node, but when I logged on to the second node, the root file system was not mounted and would not mount. I decided to force a fsck on the root system by executing the following:
A reboot brought the system partition back online but it was completely full. Looking around to see what had happened it appeared the OpenVPN logs had simply grown too large and cleaning some up freed up enough space to get things running again.
After that simply running the upgrade commands above worked without further issue and all was good.
