NAME

halt - Halt the Operating System

SYNOPSIS

halt [force]

DESCRIPTION

This command is used to shut down and then power off the system. It is only enabled for the admin user. During asynchronous operations (apply, log rotate...) this command is inoperable. You must wait until the end of these operations before calling the halt command (usually asynchronous commands have a report option that displays the execution statement).

Without the optional argument force the user is invited to confirm the halt action. The optional argument force allows you to bypass this confirmation.

Caution: It is highly recommended to use this command (or the Clean Power Button) to turn off the system. Turning the power supply directly off may damage your system.

reboot (1)
