    Unable to shutdown JBoss AS 7.1.1 on Windows using the CLI

    Scott Bass Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I've got a standalone server listening on non-default ports (port-offset=300).  I've tried using jboss-cli.bat to shutdown the server, but I can only get it to work in interactive mode.  I've got a similar jboss-cli.ps1 script (from the WildFly GitHub), but it too has the same errors.

       

      To me it looks like the arguments aren't getting parsed correctly, but that's just my guess.

       

      Here is output from the jboss-cli.bat session.  Any ideas how to get this to work?

       

      D:\jboss-as-7.1.1.Final\bin>jboss-cli.bat
      You are disconnected at the moment. Type 'connect' to connect to the server or 'help' for the list of supported commands.
      [disconnected /] connect localhost:10299 <<< THIS WORKS
      [standalone@localhost:10299 /] :shutdown <<< THIS WORKS
      {"outcome" => "success"}
      [standalone@localhost:10299 /] quit
      
      
      Press any key to continue . . .

      For the last example, I also tried:

       

      -command=:shutdown

      command=:shutdown

      :shutdown

       

      All with the same error.and=:shutdown

          Can you try using the "controller" argument while connecting to JBoss something as following :

           

          jboss-cli.bat  -c  controller=localhost:10299
          
          

           

          And

           

          jboss-cli.bat  -c  controller=localhost:10299  command=":shutdown"

            Thanks for the quick reply, much appreciated.

             

            All these permutations below worked - the "secret" is specifying the connect (-c) parameter along with the other parameters:

             

            .\jboss-cli.ps1 --connect --controller=localhost:10299 --command=:shutdown
            .\jboss-cli.ps1 -c --controller=localhost:10299 --command=:shutdown
            .\jboss-cli.ps1 -c controller=localhost:10299 command=:shutdown
            .\jboss-cli.ps1 -c controller=:10299 command=:shutdown
            .\jboss-cli.ps1 -c controller=:10299 :shutdown
            
            

             

            One last question:  if I'm running a domain controller, can I also shutdown/restart the domain controller itself?  I've hit ":<tab>", here are the results, I don't see a choice to shutdown the domain controller:

             

            PS D:\jboss-as-7.1.1.Final\bin> .\jboss-cli.ps1 -c controller=localhost:9999

            Whether I go with multiple standalone instances on the one server, or I use a domain controller with multiple servers, I need to configure this as a Windows service, so need the ability to shutdown/restart the service via the CLI.
