Sorry in advance for any miscategorization in this forum, feel free to move this post accordingly to the correct place.
So I’ve had unifi-video running on my ubuntu box for sometime, like 2-3 years or more. no issues until now.
I can’t seem to find why the service fails to run the process and have it up and running, it was working fine. I can’t recall what may have caused this to suddenly stop functioning, other services work fine still, such as lighttpd, pihole.
I can reach the camera by IP directly, the server seems to have no other known issues - i could be wrong, but so far not. is there a config file maybe where storage of recording can be edited or something? one of 4 disks is at 95% capacity but doubt that would cause this issue to stop running all together even after a new install of it.
Tried apt-get remove unifi-video and mongodb and so forth, clean up and zilch result. rebooted and a few other logical steps such as mongodb restart, status, check disk space, mem, CPU.
Tired 3.10 and 3.10.13 unifi-video installs also, same issue. (no this isn’t protect, it’s BYO hardware and unifi video with a dpkg file i have locally from the unifi website before they go EOL or remove it if not already done so)
unifi-video service status output shows this,
Feb 18 23:01:15 server01 systemd: Starting Unifi Video NVR Daemon…
Feb 18 23:01:15 server01 unifi-video: (unifi-video) Hardware type:Unknown

Feb 18 23:01:15 server01 systemd: unifi-video.service: Failed with result ‘exit-code’.
journalctl -xe doesn’t really show much more than the above neither in relation to unifi-video.
Any help is much appreciated.
p.s really do not want to rebuild the server even if it’s a home server.
Happy to provide more info where and if needed too.
