Linux schedule a one off reboot or task

So the server requires a reboot because you updated the kernel but clients are using it and you don’t work at 1:00am? Not a problem…

echo "/sbin/shutdown -r now" |at 01:00 tomorrow

You can also the check the queued jobs with:

atq

job 15 at Wed May  6 04:00:00 2015

And you can cancel the job like so:

at -r jobid

Or you can delete all jobs with:

atrm $(atq | cut -f1)

And as always RTFM
