Debian 8 (Jessie) failing to reboot from the command line.

By lastchip ·
Hello all, The title says it all really. It looks like it may be a kernel panic.

I've now got three installations of Debian Jessie and they all hang on shut-down, using the reboot command via ssh or even at the server itself.

Clearly, it's a major issue when these machines are situated at remote sites.

Have any of you guys come across this and have found an answer to the issue please?

OK, sorry, I've found my own answer.

halt and reboot no longer work in Debian 8. You have to use:

systemctl poweroff


systemctl reboot

both of which work fine.

So that's progress? I now have to write 18 characters instead of 4 to shut-down the machine, or 16 instead of 6 to reboot!!

I can see me writing a couple of aliases.
