Description

openrc-shutdown is the utility that communicates with openrc-init(8) to bring down the system or instruct openrc-init to re-execute itself. It supports the following options:

-c, --cancel

Cancel a pending shutdown.

-d, --no-write

Do not write the wtmp boot record.

-D, --dry-run

Print the action that would be taken without executing it. This is to allow testing.

-H, --halt

Stop all services, kill all remaining processes and halt the system.

-k, --kexec

Stop all services, kill all processes and boot directly into a new kernel loaded via kexec(8).

-p, --poweroff

Stop all services, kill all processes and power off the system.

-R, --reexec

instruct openrc-init to re-exec itself. This should be used after an upgrade of OpenRC if you are using openrc-init as your init process.

-r, --reboot

Stop all services, kill all processes and reboot the system.

-s, --single

Stop all services, kill all processes and move to single user mode.

-w, --write-only

Stop all services, kill all processes and move to single user mode.
