Thanks a lot
This really helped me out. I was remotely connected to a server with some blocked processes, and this was the only way to reboot the server.

great work. Sometimes the only way if reboot or shutdown fails.

Helped me out a lot of times with some kvm hangs.

I dont think the above will work if the file system is read-only (eg corrupt HDD). In this case the command would be:
reboot -n -f

Wow, thank you! This worked on Debian 5 64bit! It rebooted my server even when it was hosed.

Thanks a lot! This is exactly what i need right now.

@Brian There is no way it will fail because of a file system hangup. The kernel tells the processor to reboot directly. It reboots so hard that it doesn’t even send back the newline once you press .
