Automatic turn off: same config - different reaction of the ThinClients

Post by erazersan » Wed Jun 27, 2018 7:40 pm

Hello,

i am using Fujitsu Futro ThinClients with PXE boot and same config for all. All Clients receive turnoffmenu=poweroff parameter.
The older Futro S450-2 are going to shutdown, without any problem. The newer Futro S720 are not going down and display the message to press Esc or Enter Key.

Any idea where i can search for solution?

THX

Update bios if possible. Right solution is to pass some magic word to kernel command line, but it's too high magic. Kernel command line lives in wtware.pxe file, options are listed here: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/ ... meters.txt

bios is already up to date (R1.14 from 21.09.2017). What application do you use to edit wtware.pxe? Maybe i will try... But i think i will do the workaround with autoshutdown parameter.

Sorry, not wtware.pxe. wtware.pxe is a binary executable.

pxe.cfg is a config for wtware.pxe, and linux kernel command line for PXE boot lives in pxe.cfg. syslinux.cfg on boot USB stick for USB boot. It's a usual text file, use Notepad to edit. Add something like "acpi=force" before "quiet" word.

There is no workaround in WTware config. Linux kernel can not deal with ACPI in BIOS. Solution is in linux kernel options or in BIOS.
