2.4. Shutting Down the Containers

Shutting down the containers

Because the child containers run in their own JVMs, they do not automatically stop when you shut down the root container. To shut down a container and its children, first stop the child containers by using the fabric:container-stop command. For example, to shut down the current fabric completely, enter these console commands:
JBossFuse:karaf@root> fabric:container-stop child
JBossFuse:karaf@root> shutdown -f
After you restart the root container, you must explicitly restart its child containers by invoking the fabric:container-start console command.
For instructions for shutting down a fabric that has more than one ensemble, see Chapter 5, Shutting Down a Fabric.
