I have soft rebooted the instance via Horizon.

Hard rebooted the instance.

The instance is unreachable by SSH. OpenSSH did start but the 22 port does not respond. Maybe the instance is firewalled :-/

Maybe the best would be to rebuild the apertium service on beta cluster ?

Looks like there are IPTables rules in place preventing login. Running sudo salt 'deployment-apertium01*' 'iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -s -j ACCEPT' from deployment-salt allows logins, but I'm guessing only until the next puppet run...

TL;DR: ferm still present with outdated conf files. Removed ferm

Ah I tried accessing with salt yesterday but it did not work for some reason :(

I had puppet disable when I changed the beta cluster puppet master. A catalog from Thu Jul 23 08:10:48 2015 UTC failed with:

Error 403 on SERVER: Forbidden request: deployment-apertium01.deployment-prep.eqiad.wmflabs( access to /file_metadata/plugins

The next run with a catalog from Mon Jul 27 21:10:42 2015 UTC passed just fine.

Maybe the ferm rules were outdated / not taken in account. Puppet is running fine now and I managed to log on the instance.

I have rebooted the instance. The ferm rule does not allow ssh from (bastion-01 ) although it is listed in manifests/network.pp

Stopped ferm to regain access. /etc/ferm/conf.d/00_defs is missing the IP. I deleted it and ran puppet again but it is not regenerated.

It seems ferm used to be applied on the instance but base::firewall has been carelessly removed in the puppet definition. End result is ferm is still present with configuration which is never updated. I have uninstalled it:

dpkg --purge ferm
rm -fR /etc/ferm /var/cache/ferm

It is all good now.
