WD My Cloud 4TB, latest firmware
I’ve noticed the problem a few weeks ago. In normal operation, the device’s LED is off (not working). The LED does come on upon reboot/shutdown and during startup, but then it goes off. The device is OK, and I have no problem accessing it.
The General > Energy Saver > LED is set to ON.
Updating the firmware to the latest version made no difference.
Setting General > Energy Saver > LED to OFF, rebooting, and then setting it back to ON made no difference.
I ssh’d to /sys/class/leds/system_led/:
- blink … on
- color … blue
- brightness … 0
Also, in /sys/class/leds/system_led/power/:
- state … 0
The brightness and state values seem to me to be anomalous. Perhaps they are the cause? But I don’t know what the values should be and I hesitate to make any changes without knowing more.
Has anyone any insights in this?
Btw, I noticed that, if General > Energy Saver > LED is set to OFF, the only file that changes is /sys/class/leds/system_led/color, which is set to off.
