I have a somewhat difficult problem. I have a remote server that I won't be nearby to reboot for a few days I'd like to get restarted. The problem is that the disk seems to have crashed and I can't just run the shutdown command since it's a binary on the disk.
I've found a cool method online here: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/rebooting-magic-way however this command assumes I have root permissions, but my currently logged in account is just a regular user with sudo permissions. Running sudo just gives me an error since it can't read the sudoer's file to verify my permissions.
Any thoughts? I'm still logged in through SSH for now, but I don't expect it to let me back in if I log out.
