shutdown: Unable to send message: Connection refused


I have a linux box which is booted from PXE. Boot image contains ramdrive with init script within it. The last command of this script calls bash. So, I have bash prompt during boot.

What I need to copy into the ram drive to be able to reboot system from command line?

I have copied "reboot" executable, but I said, that it needs "shutdown". I have copied "shutdown" but still unable to reboot:

shutdown: Unable to send message: Connection refused

What I need to have in order to be able to reboot?

P.S. I am acceing machine via serial console, so I am unable to press Ctrl-Alt-Del.

I don't know. It does not ask me for login.
