Changed servers from a cloud to a bare metal (2 CPUs to E3-1270v6 Processor - 4 Cores / 8 Threads) - no problem installing, configuring, and using on the cloud but the bare metal returns “Segmentation fault (core dumped)” on verifying the version after install. From what I understand, this means restic is in a part of the memory I can’t reach… OK, now what???
No, this just means that restic tried to read from or write to a memory address that isn’t mapped. This could indicate any number of things, including (but not limited to) a bug in restic, a bug in the Go compiler, a bug in one of restic’s dependencies, or a hardware issue.
The most likely culprit, in the absence of other diagnostic information, is a bad memory module. Consider running memtest on the machine to rule that out.
Thanks CD… after posting this, we ran into other issues with the server so we ditched it, and started anew on a new one… working just fine. Was too late to run memtest…
Ah, yeah, most likely hardware issues then.
