When I use "shutdown -r --no-wall", the "--no-wall" argument is ignored.
Spotted in all Fedora versions.
Severity set to high, since in some cases it can block user from use of "shutdown -r" (Failed to set wall message, ignoring: Connection timed out)
As I remember, it can be solved most of the times, calling this as a root. However, most of the times I really need this command, I can't log in as root. (Either don't know root credentials or "su" command freeze)
Are you sure that the argument is ignored? I gave this some (light) testing now, and it seems to work just fine. This is with F25, but this code hasn't changed in ages.
Please note that --no-wall has no influence on whether shutdown comunicates with systemd-logind. It just means that systemd-logind will not broadcast the message, but it'll still be stored in systemd-logind, and can be retrieved e.g. using "loginctl show-session -p WallMessage".
I think this is just a misunderstanding.
under a fresh light of other bug reports, this could be caused by damaged systemd.
The issue appears only together with other bugs I reported.
I'll close this bug until I'll found out, what's wrong with my systemd and how to solve it.
Then it either won't appear again or I'll reopen it with new information.
