Trying to rebooting a managed server reboots the master Cloudmin instead

Rebooting a managed server via Cloudmin won't reboot the managed server but the master Cloudmin server instead, which is ugly !

Steps to reproduce : - select a manager server with Webmin - use Open Webmin feature to get into the managed server without login - reboot the managed server using the Reboot Now button of Webmin, for example the one displayed on Dashboard when a kernel upgrades requires rebooting (see attached screenshot) - You loose connection to the Cloudmin master which is actually rebooting

This happens with a KVM guest and also with another physical server.

This is absolutely critical, I lost long hours to repair the mess caused by the brutal shutdown of all critical services at the worst moment for my customers.

I see the bug.

It's fixed and will shortly be released with Authentic Theme 19.54.

So to get the fix one needs to update the Authentic theme on the Cloudmin Master, the managed system or both ? Not sure how I will dare try and test the fix :)

Hi,

Yes, both, it's better to keep themes at sync. You can use theme's shell update script or do it from the theme configuration page.
