I have a number of Linux boxes, and routinely ssh between them. I have, in the past, run
sudo reboot
only to see
Connection to sys45 closed by remote host.
and realise that I've told the wrong machine to reboot. To avoid this, I rename reboot, shutdown and poweroff to e.g.
reboot-sys45
shutdown-sys45
poweroff-sys45
where the name of the e.g. poweroff tool is unique to that particular host. Then in their place I put the simple one line script e.g.
#!/bin/dash
echo "To $0 for real, du $0-sys45."
and then if I sudo reboot, it will tell me to use sudo reboot-sys45 if I want to do it for real on that particular host.
