    Can anyone tell me that is it possible to create an ssh user who can only reboot the server and do nothing more than reboot??

    Awaiting your replies.

    Even though I have not tried, but there is a way to make it happen.
    User /etc/sudoers file to do the job.

    Replace ALL (that specifies commands) with the specific command you want to give permissions and you are done.

    example: User ALL=(REBOOT) ALL

    Hope this helps.
