[systemd-devel] System halt on service stop

Hello all

I'd like to find a clean way to halt a systemd system (actually, a
Docker container) when a "main" service stops (not just on failure).

I tried Conflicts=systemd-halt.service and calling shutdown from
ExecStopPost= but it seems both cause problems, since I end up with a
"stop job" for my service that takes 90 seconds to time out, instead
of taking down the system immediately.

What is the right way to achieve this?

ExecStart=/bin/sleep 10
ExecStopPost=/sbin/shutdown -h now
