Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 619927
systemd destroys ability to shutdown/restart a machine
Last modified: 2010-08-01 09:57:36 EDT
Description of problem:
After a boot with systemd my machine does not stop anymore after "halt" or "shutdown -h now" and does not reboot after "reboot" or "shutdown -r now". A text messages from such actions, observed on a system console, end up like that:
Starting Kill All Processes...
Not stopping monitoring, this is dangerous operation. Please use force-stop to override.
After that a system is dead with a power swith as the only possible operation; "dangerous" or not.
On other occasions before "Not stopping monitoring ..." the following line may appear:
Stopping System Initialization
but an overall outcome is the same.
Rebooting with "init=/sbin/upstart" restores an ability to shutdown. This hits bug 618678 (power off on reboot) but at least it does not hang.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
"Not stopping monitoring, this is dangerous operation." should really read
"Not stopping monitoring. This is a dangerous operation." regardless of a wisdom of such action.
