So, people say that when WD has an issue, that you should reboot the device to have it register with their service to re-establish the connection between them and your My Cloud.
Anyone know in particular what service on the My Cloud is responsible for this? I find that when there is an issue and my MyCloud (MC) won’t reconnect I cannot power cycle it. But if I can SSH into the device I’d rather just restart whatever it might be without having to reboot it or toggle the Eth0 up/down.
Being a linux-based device, the only time I should ever need to reboot the device is if there is a kernel update or a kernal panic or something that severe. I shouldn’t have to power cycle it for it to re-register, that just sort of defeats one of the great things about being linux-based (IMO).
I know it’s not an issue with my network because I can access other devices inside my network. When I do get home and log into the web dashboard it says that it does have a connection established. Which is wierd because I couldnt access it outside of my network and my device was up for 33 days.
