Hi,

In the office we have around 20 orange pis zeros (actually 10 are R1, but they are almost the same). We want to make a small device but we have a lot of unstability. Most of the orange pis halt after 1-2 days, no log, no messages on serial. They just stop answering. We are running Armbian, with the watchdog enabled.

What could cause this?

We have some clues:
1) They were stored in a plastic box, all board together, without the antistatic bags (could this be the problem?)
2) Temperature? the office they run is about 18-22C
3) Power? they are using different USB dongles, 2.4A good quality ones. And we use the same for a raspberry pi that has been running for years
4) Armbian?

People use those boards with years of up-time. Provide required logs (armbianmonitor -u) on armbian forum.

I'd ask on ARMBIAN WWW forum.  https://forum.armbian.com/

Also repost this to the ARMBIAN forum here at OPi, http://www.orangepi.org/orangepi ... forumdisplay&fid=95

Igorpec: He is a contributor to ARMBIAN http://www.orangepi.org/orangepibbsen/?863

Also make sure you get the ARMBIAN OS from ARMBIAN: https://www.armbian.com/download/?tx_maker=xunlong

Then be sure to do the apt-get update and apt-get upgrade.  Maybe do it in the armbian-config from the command line

Orange Pi zero has  'sudo armbian-config' which allows update and setup.....and setting of the processors min/maximum and management function.  Ya might change those setting a little:  https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Armbian-Config/

Maybe chill them down just for science?   

  If it is a software issue, I'm sure ARMBIAN would like to know of your issue.

I doubt it's electrostatic damage to all of them..... What are the odds?  

I'm booting a Opi one here and it stopped responding while running ARMBIAN...  Let's see if that happens again.

Set them to reboot every 12 hours?  8-)

We are thinking on just rebooting them manually with an external timer, because since the software locks up, sometimes the watchdog and timered reboots wont work.

Some issues can be solved by switching up peripherals.   Changed the WifI Dongle to a less generic and I haven't had a lockup since.

Hi Igorpec.
