after fresh OH3 installation a reboot is of the raspberry isn’t possible anymore, it seems closing the connection but is not rebooting the system (still powered). Need to unplug/plug the raspberry from power to be able to reboot. Do I missed something during installation procedure?

How long did you wait? What Raspberry Pi are you using? How did you install OH3 - looks like openhabian?
If you’re running off an SD card be careful with this method, as it may lead to data corruption.
You may need to wait some time for a restart to finish. Do you know for certain that it didn’t restart, but that it’s just taking time for all the processes to start back up (hence not being able to SSH in yet)?
Actually I experienced the same thing, after giving the command the PI shuts down, but won’t power up again.
I am on a RPI4 4GB with OH3 and openhabian 1.6.1 with SD.
The red led keeps on, but the green one is dark.
After approx. 5 min by patients was gone and pulled the plug (not much configuration on it yet). Second time same issue, afterwards just stopped rebooting.
Please only file bugs when you can provide debug level logs that actually show it is a bug.
Complaints “it takes too long on my box” are useless, noone would know how to diagnose that so there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
Most of the time it is perfectly normal behavior and not a bug. There is a lot of data that needs to be synced to disk, in particular after installation activities.
If you don’t believe you can systemctl stop zram-config.service to see how long that all by itself takes, then reboot to see how fast it is when there’s no need to sync data left.
Hi, with my Main Openhab RasPi 4 (2.5.10) I have no Problems with rebooting, with the Openhabian 1.6.2 and Openhab 3 my second PasPi 4 will freeze by rebooting. “systemctl stop zram-config.service” take a very long time… however by rebooting I can wait hours…
With Openhab 3 in my Main RasPi, reboot also not work. I have try update from Openhab 2.5.10 und clean install Openhab 3, both will not reboot…
That’s barely “the same problem” as the OP.
Rebooting works on an openHABian Pi, and it’s perfectly normal that it can take a couple of minutes because it needs to sync data.
If for you it apparently does not then you probably have a hardware problem (SD card starting to fail ?) or you changed something about the system that makes it fail to.
I’ve been experiencing long reboot times as well (> 10 minutes). But since reinstalling and fixing the first-boot.bash before the initial boot seems to have resolved my issue and I’m able to reboot in less than a minute.
Sure, but running a RP4 4GB with SSD (like in my case) and a fresh installed OH3 even the sync can’t take that loooong - …7-8min (and its not comparable to OH2.5x where it looks less than a minute). RogerG007 explanation doesn’t sounds so weird to me… lets see if OH3.0.x will fix it.
