So I just ran "reboot now" as root on an Ubuntu 12 VM (I'd installed/updated some packages and it said reboot required).
I waited a while but the machine was dead to the outside world. Not contactable via SSH or HTTP (80). I logged in via the console and:
ps aux | grep nginx
Yep. It's running
ps aux | ssh
Yep. All ok.
curl -i http://www.google.com/
The interface appears to be up.
Ok, but still no connectivity.
Power cycled via the Droplet admin thing and everything's back to normal.
Any idea what's going on there?
This is a new VM with only a handful of packages installed - nothing outlandish and no config changes to do with networking at all. Any idea what's going on?
