    Oracle Linux 6.4 installs, runs, and manual shutdown OK ...  but restarts itself after 10 minutes or so

    user11143768

      Hi Guys

       

      Successfully installed Oracle Linux 6.4 operating system , which subsequently runs as expected.

       

      When Oracle Linux 6.4 is shutdown using  standard GUI  system/shutdown ,

      it does a clean shutdown and power-off as expected  ....

      UNTIL some 10 minutes or so later , when Oracle Linux 6.4 reboots all by itself from a fully powered-down state.

       

      Likewise when Oracle Linux 6.4 is shutdown using  standard command line " shutdown -h now" ,

      it does a clean shutdown and power-off as expected  ....

      UNTIL some 10 minutes or so later , when Oracle Linux 6.4 reboots all by itself from a fully powered-down state.

       

       

      Clearly it is NOT desirable to have the operating system able  restart of it's own accord.

       

      A manual shutdown is typically  done for good reason , and the server should remain shutdown.

       

      The previous version, ie Oracle Linux 6.3 did not exhibit this behavior.

       

      When Oracle Linux 6.3 was shutdown, it stayed shutdown

       

      Question

      ======

       

      Does anyone know how to STOP Oracle Linux 6.4 from restarting itself after a successful shutdown ?

       

      Thanks
