Thread: Shutdown slow

  1. #1

    Default Shutdown slow

    Is there a way to determine what is causing a shutdown to take a very long time? It's probably some service(s) that's misbehaving but I'm not sure how to find how which one(s) since much of the functionality of the machine is disabled by the time it gets to that point and there's nothing on the command line to indicate what it's waiting for... i.e. no "Job stopping..." message.

    Does the wait occur even when leaving all user sessions before issuing shutdown?
