Watchdog (monit) re-enables itself during platform updates
If I disable the watchdog for a server that comes with the Amahi platform (say for dhcpd), the /etc/monit.d/dhcpd.conf file is deleted, but the next time a hda-platform update is installed, this file gets re-created.
The end result is the the dashboard still displays the watchdog off (unchecked), but it is in fact re-enabled, and so the service is now running, when I don't want it running.

Yeah I'm seeing the issue now. The original post was some time ago. I disable the DHCP along with its watchdog, then when an update is done it is all re-enabled again, with a green light in the amahi web interface. I've seen it do that three time so far. It's annoying the heck out of me, screws with my network.
