There are times when I need to reboot my servers manually via SSH. I formerly used

/sbin/reboot

and this would reboot my server. However, something has changed in the last few months with CPanel as now, when I reboot any of our servers using /sbin/reboot, the server hangs and I have to call my data center and ask for a manual reboot.

This happens on any of my servers running RH 6.2 and RH 7.1 with Apache 1.3.26.

Is anyone else familiar with this problem?

Does it work if you do the reboot through whm?

It could be a multiude of things, what does your NOC say, is there any message on the console that they see?

Try doing an init 6 from an ssh prompt.

Init is the parent of all processes. Runlevels 0, 1, and 6 are reserved. Runlevel 0 is used to halt the system, runlevel 6 is used to reboot the system, and runlevel 1 is used to get the system down into single user mode.

I find that works best.

Maybe try &shutdown -R now&.
