Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server Multiple Profiles in Headless Mo

Post by GaryM » Wed Oct 29, 2014 12:40 am

Hi All

I would like to congratulate you on the latest release of UMS and the added 8083 / 9001 Web Interface.
I am trying to set up my Server to work with multiple profiles however I am stuck on where I should add the FAQ tutorial on this. the FAQ suggest the following:
Environment Variable (Advanced):

UMS also supports multiple profiles by means of the UMS_PROFILE environment variable.

If this variable is unset, the default profile directory is used to locate UMS.conf (and WEB.conf, if used).

If UMS_PROFILE is an absolute or relative (to the working directory) path pointing to an existing directory, then UMS.conf is loaded from and saved to that directory. If UMS_PROFILE is set, but doesn't point to an existing directory, it is assumed to be a relative or absolute path to a profile file. Note: while the file doesn't need to exist, the directory containing it must exist if the file is to be saved.

Examples:

UMS_PROFILE=UMS.conf ./UMS.sh
UMS_PROFILE=relative/path/to/profile.conf ./UMS.sh
UMS_PROFILE=/absolute/path/to/myprofile.conf ./UMS.sh
I have attempted to put the additional Profiles into the /etc/init.d/UMS file however when i restart the server it loads the last Profile in the list.. Should I be adding the file Paths and Profile names in another location?

Please let me know as I an unsure of where the additional profiles should be quoted.
I hope this makes sense??

Hi Again all - starting to think i am missing something glaringly obvious but cannot see the Wood for the Trees.

Question - should I start the UMS.sh on multiple occasions to represent each profile or am I right in my earlier comment (albeit slightly confused) about list the UMS_PROFILE Paths's and Names in the init.d/UMS file?? I have attached the relevent section below and would really appreciate any feedback on this as it's starting to drive me a little nuts.. The UMS Server is working but it will only work on the last profile list as per the below:

PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
DESC="Universal Media Server"
NAME=UMS
UMS_PROFILE=/etc/UMS.conf
UMS_PROFILE=/etc/samsung/UMS_Samsung.conf
DAEMON=/opt/ums/$NAME.sh
DAEMON_OPTS="console"
SCRIPTNAME=/etc/init.d/$NAME
UMS_START=1 # Wether to start or not UMS ver at boot time.
DODTIME=30 # Time to wait for the server to die, in seconds.
# If this value is set too low you might not
# let the program to die gracefully and 'restart' will not work

test -x $DAEMON || exit 1

# Load the VERBOSE setting and other rcS variables
. /lib/init/vars.sh

# Define LSB log_* functions.
# Depend on lsb-base (>= 3.0-6) to ensure that this file is present.
. /lib/lsb/init-functions

# Include ums defaults if available
if [ -f "/etc/default/$NAME" ]; then
. /etc/default/$NAME
fi


Could anyone help save my sanity??
