System wont boot - Stuck in Emergency Mode - ACPI

Asked by Dave on 2018-08-06

Our server was rebooted today and I get the following errors:

ACPI Error: No handler for Region [SYSI]
ACPI Error: Region IPMI (ID=7) has no handler
ACPI Error: Method parse/exectuion failed
ACPI Error: Method parse/exectuion failed
ACPI Exception: AE_NOT_EXIST

I have tried the following:
1. Went into GRUB and disabled ACPI
2. Went into GRUB and choose an older linux kernel
3. Removed all external USB devices

Any other help would greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Do you have the latest BIOS?
Have you tried setting the BIOS to failsafe settings and/or resetting it?

The BIOS has not been updated for some time. I have not tried entering into BIOS yet. This all seems strange to me as the server has been fully functional for 1+ years.

Is there anything else you could recommend?

If you run:

echo "blacklist acpi_power_meter" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf > /dev/null

(basically adds the line to the file). Then reboot, is it OK?
