shutdown -i 5 question

Post by Kiki » Sun, 16 Jun 2002 10:56:34



Hello everyone,
My understanding is that command "shutdown -i 5" is equivalent to
"init 5".
When I issue command "shutdown -i 5" i have this output:

<<<<<<<<<<<
The system mars will be shut down in 1 minute

Broadcast Message from root (console) on mars Fri Jun 14 21:35:32...
The system mars will be shut down in 30 seconds

Broadcast Message from root (console) on mars Fri Jun 14 21:38:18...
False Alarm:  The system mars will not be brought down.
           init  is  to  be  in.  By default, system state `s' is
           used.

What does it mean? Thanks.

I believe this is the message you would see if you did not specify the
-y flag to shutdown, and then answered 'n' when prompted as to whether
you would like to shutdown the machine or not.

regards,
Justin
