Sorry I don't have any suggestions or workaround other then using reboot and chaining into ipxe again which could then do a poweroff with some serverside state and scripting.

OK. Rebooting and then powering off is an acceptable workaround. Thanks for the suggestion Smile
In case anyone else is interested. Here was my solution - it is definitely a bit of a hack!

I stuck this at the beginning of my script

chain poweroff/${mac:hexraw}.ipxe ||

and put the following in poweroff/poweroff.php

PHP Code:


$action $_GET["action"];

if (
$action == "create") {
file_put_contents("$mac.ipxe""#!ipxe\nchain poweroff.php?mac=$mac&action=delete");
} elseif (
$action == "delete") {


Then I called poweroff with
chain poweroff/poweroff.php?mac=${mac:hexraw}&action=create

Maybe that's useful for someone else.
