This is an option, but then I can better al together abandon threads. The work that's done in this thread has to end before I can execute the fallback option.
This function askes the virtual system to die, the friendly way, via the management server. When it's not dead in the allotted timeframe, the command has to be killed so I can issue the unfriendly command to turn the system off. (i.e. pull the virtual plug) The system (hatrdware the virtual machine is running on) won't accept a second command for the virtual system when there is still a command being processed.
I was looking at threads to solve this issue with a neat single script, to replace the bunch of KSH scripts I now have and that are to slow, but as it seems this is not possible. (with this old perl/threads module) To bad.
