Crash & Reboot

     We had one of our physical servers, which mainly services virtual private servers, crash and reboot this morning.

     The crash was caused by snapd attempting to apply livepatch to our kernel which is not a Canonical kernel.  Livepatch was disabled in the software properties but it tried anyway.

     I’ve removed snapd from our physical servers to prevent a recurrence and any security risk that snapd may represent.
