The -e option causes the optical drive to eject any disk contained in it. The -n option prevents the sync before stopping. The -p option causes the machine to be powered down after shutdown. -q option causes a quick halt, no graceful shutdown is attempted. The -y option is needed if you are trying to halt the system from a dialup.
Halt normally logs the shutdown using syslog.8 and places a shutdown record in the login accounting file /usr/adm/wtmp. These actions are inhibited if the -n or -q options are present.
