Another option would be to use the GShell command deploy/login by updating your server to v2.1.1.2 or above, which is based on G2.1.4.

You only need to input the username/password once, after that you won't be bothered to input them from command line interface any more.

Similar information was documented in G2.1 doc at

Is this a Linux O/S?

If so, do you have an init script that does the shutdown. If it's
Linux I assume so, because the alternative would be a kill signal.

So, to do this in Linux I stored my username and password in file
which only root can read, then I have these added to the
script's arguments. Something like:
/path/to/geronimo/bin/ stop --user
`</path/to/username.file` --password `</path/to/password.file`
