The following error can be found in
/var/log/fail2ban.logfor different jails:
CONFIG_TEXT: fail2ban.actions  iptables -w -X f2b-plesk-login -- stderr: "iptables v1.4.21: Couldn't load target `f2b-plesk-login':No such file or directory\n\nTry `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.\niptables: No chain/target/match by that name.\niptables: No chain/target/match by that name.\n" \
Fail2ban chains were removed from iptables.
Restart Fail2Ban service in Tools & Settings > Services Management > IP Address Banning (Fail2Ban):
Note: In order to avoid the issue recurrence, it is strongly recommended to review
fail2bansettings against the following points:
Do not use excessively high bantime values (over 9999), in Tools & Settings > IP Address Banning (Fail2Ban) > Settings tab > IP address ban period.
Do not use more than 1 banning action in fail2ban jails configuration, e.g.
iptables-allportsin the same jail.
