What exactly to you mean by "stops responding"?
Does it return an error?
Does the call hang indefinitely?
Does the call time out?
What does rxdebug say?
> root@goliath:~#bos shutdown goliath.megacz.com
> bos: failed to shutdown servers (communications failure (-1))
That's not "refuses to shut down"; that's "communications failure".
The bosserver is not answering your RPC. Perhaps there is no bosserver
running on that host?
