Recently I realized that the harddrives of my Diskstation never stopped and entered the sleep mode.
Logging on to the Admin UI and starting to disable and stop applications and services I realized that certain services like Universal Search could not be stopped from the UI.
Login via ssh
However you can using a console (don't know why UI is not possible):
- Enable SSH access if not yet done:
Control Center -> Terminal & SNMP
- Log on via a console:
- Enter your admin password.
synoservice can be used to identify, start, stop, disable... services. The one responsible for Universal Search is
$ sudo synoservice --status pkgctl-SynoFinder Service [pkgctl-SynoFinder] status=[enable] required upstart job: [pkgctl-SynoFinder] is start. =======================================
Stop the service
$ sudo synoservice --status pkgctl-SynoFinder Service [pkgctl-SynoFinder] status=[disable] required upstart job: [pkgctl-SynoFinder] is stop. ======================================= ```
