system hangs on shutdown


Redhat AS 3 update 1, Dell PE 1600SC w/duel procs, megaraid, standard uncompiled kernel

System is locking up on shutdown every time. I even tried rebooting in run levels 5, 3, and single user. It locks every time right after the message "INIT: No more processes left in this run level" gets displayed to the console.

Nothing is showing up in /var/messages. Last entries before the next [manual] boot are:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aug 26 16:45:21 lsdev nfslock: rpc.statd shutdown succeeded
Aug 26 16:45:21 lsdev portmap: portmap shutdown succeeded
Aug 26 16:45:21 lsdev kernel: Kernel logging (proc) stopped.
Aug 26 16:45:21 lsdev kernel: Kernel log daemon terminating.
Aug 26 16:45:22 lsdev syslog: klogd shutdown succeeded
Aug 26 16:45:22 lsdev exiting on signal 15
Aug 26 17:06:08 lsdev syslogd 1.4.1: restart. -------(next reboot starts)
Aug 26 17:06:08 lsdev syslog: syslogd startup succeeded
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have to hard-reset to reboot.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

- JoeB

Sounds to me like the system halt completed fine.

We have a similar problem - did you resolve your rebooting??

In the boot.log file, all shows "successful" except for one entry:

Feb 8 07:39:52 ns5 nfslock: rpc.statd shutdown failed

Nfslock does the file sharing and locking - after reboot, the httpd does not come up, attempts to restart result in:

error 30 read-only file system when it is attempting to write to the log files

... so we can't get info after that point.

Only solution = manual reboot

Any suggestions where to hunt down why nfslock does not shutdown and if that is the culprit??

Thanks!

Have you tried disabling Plug 'n play support in your BIOS ? This has made a difference for me on SMP systems using FreeBSD in the past.

My AS3 server does the same thing a lot when a AMD/NFS connection goes bad.
If the shutdown does not complete but you still have a root terminal open try looking if any NFS mounts are still up. If they are, go and manually umount all of them using the -f and -l (lazy) option, and specify '&' so umount runs in the background.... then do another shutdown -h now immediately after that.
