Ubuntu: Ubuntu Server Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS reboots instead of shutdown



Question:

I have a server which runs Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 LTS. The problem is, instead of a proper shutdown, the server reboots itself, when using the "shutdown" command.


Solution:1

Use

sudo shutdown -r now  

This will restart the computer instantly. And if you another problem please post the terminal input in full


Solution:2

sudo shutdown -P now  

I tried -P for poweroff, and seems to work for some reason.
