Description

Need to change the DAEMON="false" to DAEMON="true" in /etc/default/hddtemp file. Recommend we do this in the initial install script.

this has been fixed. If you can please verify next time you install and close.

What about existing installs? Can we push an update that fixes it or would it be better to provide manual guidance?

#4 Updated by cpg over 8 years ago

yeah. too risky. i asked effem about where to peg this restart, but he did not reply. it's too hard to do automatically, near as i can tell (would have to do the actual text change) and restart the daemon.

best to give manual guidance:

  • please change the DAEMON="false" to DAEMON="true" in /etc/default/hddtemp
  • please do as root: service hddtemp restart

Maybe we should do this via mass email? I am thinking maybe add it to the wiki then send an email detailing the update procedure. Users can choose whether to do it or not.

I don't see simply DAEMON but RUN_DAEMON and this is already set to "true". After entering the restart command I got:

  • Stopping disk temperature monitoring daemon hddtemp No /usr/sbin/hddtemp found running; none killed.
    [ OK ]
  • Starting disk temperature monitoring daemon hddtemp: [ OK ]

Then it showed the temperature so I actually think it is not an issue of the parameters but just starting the service. Could you try to see if it maybe does not start itself if the server is restarted?

Can I also have hddtemp send me a warning about the health-status of the disks, e.g. if a certain temperature is reached, if sectors seem damaged etc.?

Not sure, but this is best asked in the forums. Please use this tool for issues only. You might find an answer on the internet as well.

No reply from user, so closing. This was fixed in a platform update release.
