Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • on RHEL 5.9 system with an QLE8152 CNA HBA (FCoE) system hangs during reboots (5-10 minutes), specifically during the shutdown phase.
  • no errors in /var/log/messages.
  • the console displays:
Unmounting file systems

Then, a lengthy call trace scrolls across the screen. After, this is displayed:

  • the above entire 5+ minute process repeats for the second mpath device.
  • why does this happen during a shutdown/reboot?
