I have a really wierd problem. My WD MyCloud is going offline whenever I turn off one specific PC on the network. This is no happening when I just disable my ethernet adapter on that PC. I’ve setup static address for WD MyCloud, and route, ifconfig, and /var/log entries were not showing anything unusual. There was only a notification that that PC is taking over to be a local samba master, by I’ve increased priority in samba.cnf and the message is now gone, but the problem is still appearing.
Just to let you know, entire system goes down - SSH, HTTP and filesharing - I can’t telnet to the device after I shutdown PC. I can connect again once I turn on my PC again.
tracert on other machines did not show that any trafic is going via my PC - it goes directly over the router to the WD My Cloud.
I’ve tried system reset on the WD my cloud without any luck.
I suspect some event on Samba is being triggered when my windows machine is turned on/off (rember - just pulling it out of the network is not changing anything, it has to be a shutdown), but I don’t know how to proceed.
