Description of problem:
I'm really sorry for adding this as a bug cos' its sure as hell my own idiocy but I've been grappling with this for over a year on and off and I still can't get it resolved.

I'm simply want to shut down the machine after backup and have tried different commads from "shutdown -h now" to "sbin/shutdown -h now" (without inverted commas)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Backup set
2.Execute after command: /bin/sh: sbin/shutdown -h now

Actual Results:
Jul 11 21:19:38 :: INFO : Executing 'After' command
Jul 11 21:19:43 :: WARNING : Command returned with a non-zero exit status:
Jul 11 21:19:43 :: ERROR : Return value: 127
stderr: /bin/sh: sbin/shutdown: No such file or directory


Nov 30 20:40:36 :: WARNING : Command returned with a non-zero exit status:
Nov 30 20:40:36 :: ERROR : Return value: 127
stderr: /bin/sh: shutdown: command not found

Expected Results:
Machine shutdown

Additional info:
The command "sbin/shutdown -h now" will work when used as part of a cron job but my preference is for fwbackups to shutdown when its actually finished. Any suggestions really appreciated.

Thanks - David

Thank you for your bug report.

We are sorry, but the Fedora Project no longer
maintains this version of Fedora. Please upgrade to the latest version and

As a result we are setting this bug to CLOSED:WONTFIX

The /bin/sh is usually only manually specified for shell scripts, and I think
you're missing a slash - Try using "/sbin/shutdown -h now" or "poweroff" as the
