1.20 Reboot problem with Dell PowerEdge R220


Hi, I have 1.20 installed on the Dell R220. When i type the reboot command, the server will end up on that line and the server will not reboot. Any ideas? in 1.18 is everythink OK


Are you using a rolling release, or did you build this from source? If rolling, what version?


no, its LTS…from subscribe iso… i use only stable versions


Can you provide me details of etc/default/grub?



Couple of options, toggle some ACPI (S1 states, etc) settings in bios to see if it impoves the behavior,

I’d only recommend doing the below on a machine you have phsyical access to and isn’t production:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet" <<replace "quiet" with "reboot=bios" or "reboot=pci quiet"
sudo update-grub
then test to see if reboot is fixed.


eeh… /usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of `overlay’.


Hmm…I’ve got a few R210II (About the same) that I run on, and I don’t see any isssues with rebooting. Have you had a chance to verify BIOS settings?


yes i check it…thank you


My apologies, grub-update isn’t actually an option. What bios version are you running on the R220?


last 1.10.3 version…
