How do I shutdown a JBoss server using CLI command ?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We used to use JBoss but this command is no longer used in EAP 6, what is the correct command to use instead?

  • While trying to shutdown JBoss EAP6 using CLI we are getting the following Exception:

[jsenshar@localhost bin]$ ./ --connect --controller=localhost:9999 command=:shutdown
    "outcome" => "failed",
    "failure-description" => "JBAS010850: No handler for operation shutdown at address []",
    "rolled-back" => true
  • How do I start/shutdown a single JBoss instance and server group when running in domain mode? What will be user name and password for shutdown ?

  • After upgrading to EAP 7.3.x, shutdown CLI command shows following warn message :

"warning" => "WFLYCTL0449: Operation stop against the resource at address /host=HOST/server-config=SERVER is deprecated, and it might be removed in future version. See the the output of the read-operation-description operation to learn more about the deprecation.",
