testing video on Arch Linux (with systemd v212)
The 'quiet' kernel parameter has no effect during the latter part of shutdown process.
This may be a duplicate of this older bug: .
However the above one has been solved since systemd 206(,). And after systemd 209, it seems that this bug appears again.
Today I tested this on Arch Linux(in virtualbox) with systemd 212.(gzipped webm video as attachment)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Ensure 'quiet' has been added to kernel parameter line, boot into OS without any "[ ERROR ]" during the startup process.
2.login, then use 'halt' to shutdown.
Several lines output without error message printed on screen by systemd-shutdown.
There are no output from systemd-shutdown(except the error output) when the 'quiet' appears on /proc/cmdline.
I can confirm that bug with systemd v. 213-6. Quiet has been added to kernel parameter line, but still many output messages appears. It have to be black screen.
I sent a patch a week ago to fix this, it will be merged in master soon I think.
It is fixed in git.
This was indeed fixed by Ronny with

Patch sent to mailing list: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/systemd-devel/2014-August/022756.html
