Good morning all,
i have a little issue that has been puzzelling me for a bit,
i have an ubuntu server now with a fresh clean and updated install of 16.04.2 LTS and when i go to shutdown or reboot using the usall reboot / poweroff command or if at lock screen with alt-ctrl-del
i get reached target shutdown after 120 seconds in an never ending loop,server showing target shutdown reached but stuck at it
update - 3 hours later
i would like to add that i also added the intel micro-code by running:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install intel-microcode
also till now the only method i got the server to reboot and off is by appending -f to poweroff and reboot commands, how ever this server is meant to be at a remote site, and i will not always be able to go to said site to powercycle the server. if anyone may help i am deeply thankfull.
temp fix - hacking of grub
To fix my problem, I had to edit the /etc/default/grub config file and added acpi=force apm=power_off to the config line, between the double quotation marks…
do a update-grub after saving then reboot one more time.. ( force restart when it hangs ) After the restart, try another reboot, it should work now without hanging.
Update - issue still persisting.
