Have anyone figured out a way to let the VPS with Gentoo Template to reboot when typed in reboot from the VPS shell?

When I typed in reboot in the VPS's shell, the vps stops, but it never came backup. I had to restart it from the SSH of my root account on the phsycial node.

VPS with fedora or centos, or even openSUSE template seems to be working fine. My cron reboot file is set to cron every minute.

any ideas on what files I had to add/edit in Gentoo template to enable reboot command within the VPS?

Thanks for any help!

/reboot file should be created in VE when VE goes to runlevel 6.
For gentoo template you can add creation of /reboot file to
/etc/init.d/reboot.sh file:

--- /etc/init.d/reboot.sh.backup        2006-09-17 18:17:30.000000000 +0000
+++ /etc/init.d/reboot.sh       2006-09-17 18:18:46.000000000 +0000

+touch /reboot

 /sbin/reboot -dp

 # hmm, if the above failed, that's kind of odd ...

Can you provide me temporary access to the node?
If yes - then PM me login information.

I guess you forgot something small and it's really troublesome to
determine it without access...

BTW, does cron work?

Thanks!

If you wish, you can give me an access to the node and I'll take a look at it. I don't rememeber now how it was solved previous time.

I ended up moving /sbin/reboot to /sbin/reboot2 and creating a symbolic link from /etc/init.d/reboot.sh to /sbin/reboot

I then edited the /etc/init.d/reboot.sh script to touch /reboot and execute /sbin/reboot2 instead of /sbin/reboot

This seems to work.

See any possible problems with solving it this way?

Hi,

You would need to update the vzctl version of the host-node to >4.1
