I am trying to change a parameter with hbanyware. After I change it it says to reload lpfc. Everytime I try to do an modprobe -r lpfc I get the error FATAL:Module LPFC is in use. I don't even have any cables connected. I am useing Red Hat 5.2.

Well, SOMETHING is using the LPFC module. Could be powerpath, hbanyware, anything...

Best thing to do, would be to reboot the system, if you can't figure out what process is using that module. Are there any other modules that reference lpfc? ("lsmod | grep lpfc"). They may need to be unloaded first, before lpfc....
