Re: command to restart tru64

Fahad,

You can use the -r option but be aware that if you're running v4.0x of Tru64 that none of the shutdown scripts will be executed. From the shutdown man page:

Note that the -h and -r flags use a broadcast kill signal and not the run level transition scripts. To use the run level transition scripts, execute the shutdown command without the -h or -r flag. This will bring the system down to single user mode. From single user mode, execute shutdown with the -h or -r flag. Alternatively, you can execute init 0 which will bring the system from level 3 to the console prompt.

If you're running Tru64 V5.x then add the -s option: # shutdown -rs now

Re: command to restart tru64

"reboot" does not run the shutdown scripts for associated subsystems. Therefore it shouldn't be run directly by the user.

Re: command to restart tru64

I have used shutdown -r now a lot. Too often.

More than once I wished I had given myself a minute or two. And at times I wished my collegeas (and even myself) had told me why it came down.

So I try to be a good boy and use both a modest delay time, and a message if there is any chance anyone else is on the system. Example:

shutdown -r +5 testing new disk array

[those reboots are not for production systems. Just lab testing]

Hein.

Hein,

I know what you mean about giving yourself a minute or two. I hate that sinking feeling I get right after pressing at the end of the 'shutdown' command and then realize your on the wrong system!
