telinit - Change SysV runlevel


   telinit [OPTIONS...] {COMMAND}


   telinit may be used to change the SysV system runlevel. Since the
   concept of SysV runlevels is obsolete the runlevel requests will be
   transparently translated into systemd unit activation requests.


   The following options are understood:

       Print a short help text and exit.

       Do not send wall message before reboot/halt/power-off.

   The following commands are understood:

       Power-off the machine. This is translated into an activation
       request for and is equivalent to systemctl

       Reboot the machine. This is translated into an activation request
       for and is equivalent to systemctl reboot.

   2, 3, 4, 5
       Change the SysV runlevel. This is translated into an activation
       request for,, ... and is
       equivalent to systemctl isolate, systemctl isolate, ...

   1, s, S
       Change into system rescue mode. This is translated into an
       activation request for and is equivalent to systemctl

   q, Q
       Reload daemon configuration. This is equivalent to systemctl

   u, U
       Serialize state, reexecute daemon and deserialize state again. This
       is equivalent to systemctl daemon-reexec.


   On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.


   This is a legacy command available for compatibility only. It should
   not be used anymore, as the concept of runlevels is obsolete.
