Grafana not reachable after setup/ reboot

Installed OH3 freshly incl. InfluxDB/Grafana. Working well and set first graph. Rebooted after a while the Raspberry Pie and finally not able any longer to enter localhost:3000 (site not reachable). Any idea how to solve? A 2nd install of Grafana failed btw.

What are the error messages during re-install resp. during startup ?
Any information either in /var/log/syslog or via command: sudo journalctl -xe

issue is reproducible.

  1. Complete fresh OH 3.0.0 (openhabian 1.6.2, RPi4, SSD).

  2. Installing directly afterwards grafana+influxdb (via openhabian) + influxdb persistence.
    –> Access to grafanfa via ip:3000 possible

  3. Reboot RPi4
    –> No access any longer to ip:3000

checked the status - instance is not started

Hi, same issue here. And i had a similar issue with mosquitto.
Fix for mosquitto: click here

To fix grafana, this worked for me:
sudo mkdir -p /var/log/grafana /opt/zram/log.bind/grafana
sudo chown grafana /var/log/grafana /opt/zram/log.bind/grafana
sudo systemctl start grafana-server
Create /lib/systemd/system/grafana-server.service.d/override.conf and insert

[Unit]
After=network-online.target zram-config.service
Wants=network-online.target zram-config.service

Hope this will help you!

Best regards
