Shutdown Issued From Within Guest Does Not Complete

(Doc ID 1128223.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version: 2.2 and later   [Release: OVM22 and later ]
Linux x86
Linux x86-64


A "shutdown" command issued from within a guest should cause the guest machine to no longer exist after its shutdown operations have completed.

For example, on a Linux guest, the "shutdown -h now" command is issued, and the message "acpi power off called" is seen. The expected result is for VM Manager to show status "Powered off" for the guest.

Should VM Manager still show the guest is running, and the "xm list" command on VM Server show the guest still exists in state "shutdown", then the configuration for the guest should be checked.
