Is it possible to make ubuntu shutdown right away instead of counting to 1.30min then shutdown. PS: It is a script that is running that gives the message.enter image description here


As I already mentioned in comments, setting DefaultTimeoutStopSec in /etc/systemd/system.conf should solve this problem.

    This is a workaround, A solution would be to figure out why systemd can't stop whatever it needs, and fix it. Apparently, it has been years, and no one is interested, so mean while users just tell systemd to go kill itself after 10 seconds. Mar 28 '19 at 18:26
