450,000 alerts since yesterday! /usr/sbin/hostapd exited with code 256 and restarted by inittab

[ Edited ]

/usr/sbin/hostapd exited with code 256 and restarted by inittab

 

Seems to have started out of the blue (no updates recently).

 

CloudKey firmware: UCKP.apq8053.v1.0.3.751d60d.190524.1809

Controller Version: 5.10.24-11676-1

AP Firmware: 4.0.42.10433

 

I have done some research on here and it sounds like a similar issue solved through a PM (not very helpful for the rest of us!). https://community.ubnt.com/t5/UniFi-Wireless/usr-sbin-hostapd-exited-with-code-256-and-restarted-by-...

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello @NStar,

 

Tried to forget and factory reset the UAP?

That thread you linked was a different issue Man Happy

I have not tried factory resetting the UAPs because I am getting alerts (all started at the same time) from all the UAPs on the site.  Therefore, I figured it wasn't a UAP issue.  But will give it a shot anyways.
