Stopping Amahi Dynamic DNS Updater stops hdactl and thus //hda/setup
I am setting up a server for email and don't want most of the Amahi features. I have turned off DHCP, Samba, and OpenVPN.
I plan on turning off DNS and Greyhole. But I chose to turn off Amahi Dynamic DNS Updater before these. I have been taking the cautious approach to reboot after each server is disabled.
After the reboot of the Dynamic DNS Updater, I could not get into //hda/setup. With my experience, I guessed that hdactl was not running. 'service hdactl status' confirmed this. Starting hdactl allowed me to get into setup and reenable the DDU, and with a reboot, I am now able to get into setup (hdactl is running on boot).
Either this task is doing too much or it is severely mislabelled! Given that I have my own public addresses, I don't need an external Dynamic DNS...
