How can I reboot or shutdown BSD (FreeBSD) based system? (Command shutdown -h 0 is not working.)
FreeBSD or other BSD uses the shutdown or halt command to shutdown system. To reboot FreeBSD/BSD box use reboot command.
Use shutdown command to close down the system at a given time. You can type the following command to shutdown system immediately:
# shutdown -h now
Use the following command:
# shutdown -r now
Probably you have guessed the parameter -h (halt) and -r (reboot).
