I got my Turris Omnia, set it up, did the required updates. Somewhat later I added my first custom interface and firewall zone through LuCI. Finally entering Internet credentials on January 5th.
I finished large parts of my network setup at January 7th, added new interfaces and firewall zones through LuCI. Always using “Save & Apply” button.
On January 10th I added the last interface and firewall zone, also saving it.
Today (January 16th) I restarted my router through LuCI → System → Reboot … and was left with a dysfunctional network. It was reset to a configuration from or after January 5th but before January 7th.
So I looked up reForis and luckily there was a snapshot from January 14th, so I rolled back to it and restarted:
… but it didn’t help, Router still had configuration from January 5th
So I had to re-do configuration from (rare) screenshots and memory.
Why did that happen? How can I be sure that next reboot will keep my configuration and this won’t happen again?
Why did a rollback to that earlier snapshot not restore my configuration? (Experienced this earlier too, but just was a small change, so I re-did it manually and forgot to report.)
