So I’ve updated My Cloud to the latest firmware, first thing I did was to tweak it by disabling unnecessary services.
I’ve added the following lines to crontab:
@reboot /bin/sh /etc/rc2.d/S86wdphotodbmergerd stop
@reboot /bin/sh /etc/rc2.d/S85wdmcserverd stop
@reboot /etc/init.d/wdmcserverd stop
@reboot /etc/init.d/wdphotodbmergerd stop
@reboot /etc/init.d/netatalk stop
Rebooted My Cloud, then ran the following:
service wdmcserverd status
service wdphotodbmergerd status
It shows that these services are still running when they shouldn’t be. I checked crontab and sure enough, the lines I’ve added are still there. Permission is set to 777 so I have no idea why it’s not working. I’e done this before and I KNOW it works. If you do this:
It definitely stops the service. So the same line added with the @reboot parameter should work, not sure why it’s not working.
I’ve tried creating a service under cron.d and added the same lines to it. Still doesn’t work.
