Ubuntu: `shutdown -r now` command completely shutting down instead of restarting


Hi we've just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS onto a new server. It's on a SuperMicro X9SCA-f Motherboard .

Now we're aiming to locate this in a remote server room - however when we execute a shutdown -r now the system completly shuts down and has to be restarted using the power button!! I cant find any BIOS setting that seems applicable.

Any help/pointers greatly appreciated.


Restart using init:

sudo init 6  

The init 6 command gracefully reboots the system running all the K* shutdown scripts first, before rebooting. The reboot command does a very quick reboot. It doesn’t execute any kill scripts, but just unmounts filesystems and restarts the system.
