I am trying to soft reboot an instance but it is stuck "rebooting". Then I try to shut off the instance, and I get this message "Error: Unable to shut off instance"

There’s also a head reboot, does that help? You could also run virsh destroy directly on the hypervisor if it’s kvm or the corresponding command for other hypervisors. Virt-Manager is another option.

Do you mean hard reboot? If yes, it is not available anymore: (link text)

Ok, so you’re not admin in that project. Do you have access to the hypervisor to try any of the other options I mentioned?
