Posted on Sunday March 13, 2016 by Eric Potvin

You server probably already has bluetooth disabled or off. Just in case, you can double check and if the service is enable, here's how you can disable it.

To disable bluetooth service on startup, you can add the command to disable it in the /etc/rc.local file.

sudo vi /etc/rc.local

add this line before exit 0:

rfkill block bluetooth

You can also disable it on boot in the main configuration file.

sudo vi /etc/bluetooth/main.conf

And set InitiallyPowered to false:

InitiallyPowered = false
