How to resolve 'An unknown error has occurred' critical system errors on the NovaSeq X/X Plus
NovaSeq X Series Control Software initialization issues that do not fit within the Control Software error reporting structure will present with the following error message:
"Critical system error - An unknown error has occurred. The system may require a restart."
If this error presents during instrument or Control Software initialization, see the following recommendations:
- 1.Do not select Shutdown or power cycle the instrument. Instead, select Exit Application to close the NovaSeq X Series Control Software.
- 2.Collect the Control Software Logs from the /usr/local/illumina/logs/novaseq-x-series-control-software directory on the instrument.
