Redis deploy failing

We had a running redis instance that appears to have crashed and can’t be restarted. It was deployed using

# fly.toml file generated for app-redis on 2022-06-14T19:19:34-04:00

app = "app-redis-dev"
kill_signal = "SIGINT"
kill_timeout = 5
processes = []

  image = "flyio/redis:6.2.6"


  allowed_public_ports = []
  auto_rollback = true

    destination = "/data"
    source = "app_redis_dev"

About five months ago and had no issues. In the logs all we’re getting is:

What you get when you call:

flyctl status -a app-redis-dev

do you create [mounts] in sub services ?

i think you need setup fly.toml like this

    destination = "/data"
    source = "app_redis_dev"

@byku @bogordesain this ended up being related to the outage. we had to create a new redis volume from a snapshot of our pre-existing one before the outage this previous post helped
