I have a script that is run to backup a server via Rsync, after that script is run I want the server to reboot.
My script is run as root from the Crontab at 3am in the morning.
#!/bin/bash HOST="email" RSYNC_OPTS="-a -v -v --progress --stats --delete" RSYNC_DEST="10.0.0.10::$HOST" BACKUP_LIST="/etc /home /root" TIMESTAMP="/timestamp-bkup-start.chk" TIMESTAMP2="/timestamp-bkup-stop.chk" touch $TIMESTAMP rsync $RSYNC_OPTS $TIMESTAMP $RSYNC_DEST for BACKUP_ITEM in $BACKUP_LIST; do rsync $RSYNC_OPTS $BACKUP_ITEM $RSYNC_DEST done /etc/init.d/zimbra stop sleep 60s rsync $RSYNC_OPTS /opt $RSYNC_DEST touch $TIMESTAMP2 rsync $RSYNC_OPTS $TIMESTAMP2 $RSYNC_DEST echo `date +%Y%m%d%H%M` >> /var/log/reset reboot # $# shows number of args passed # $1 to access first variable #if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then # if [ $1 = "withreboot" ]; then # echo "rebooting..."; # echo `date +%Y%m%d%H%M` >> /var/log/reset # /sbin/reboot # fi #fi
I have tried using init 6 rather then reboot. I have tried /sbin/reboot.
I also have another basic script that just echos to the reset log and runs reboot without issue. It is just with the script above the server wont restart.
If anyone has any theories that would be great as I have run out of idea.
