we can use this command I think it is useful:

example :22:00 20 Jan
login as root:
>at 2200 Jan 20
>shutdown -h
>enter
ctrl+d
after that run this command:
/etc/init.d/atd start

you can see view/remove job with:
atq=view
atrm=remove
I hope that i said be useful.

a: Minutes (0-59)
b: Hour (0-23)
c: Day of Month (1-31)
d: Month (1-12)

check for more options here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crontab

I just hope you have the right to turn the box off, I mean SLA documents signed and approved by your customer, situation could turn ugly real fast. What about just not giving them any more support, but let them make phonecalls man!

lol....:)

Yeah, that wouldn't fly in the US. If I buy my system and you shut it down because I don't want to pay your for support, you just landed yourself in court, especially if I lost business due to the down time.

Guys, why is that, you turn this nice piece of equipment to some 'shutdown if no payment' machine ? If you do that, well, next answer for your questions should be:
- pay for training
- buy some books
- make LABO, test yourself
etc.. We should always help customers, if they pay. If they don't well, just don't help them. Wait. Something will force them to buy SLA next time, when they reach a 48+ hours of downtime...

Yes that's true. But it's deferent one part of the world to other. if you consider EU, customers are always willing pay even they don't have any service. But not in everywhere. But still it's rude to shutdown system if customer not paid.

Don't you think the customer will just startup the pbx again after you shut it down?
Perhaps it's better to get/keep remote access and when the SLA ends, remove the license file and restart the system.
The customer will get limited features and is sure to call you for assistance....
