Did not encounter this hang.
this bug need to investigate to narrow where the bug is lying . But please add relnote for this quirk first .
QE tried to install RHEVH onto Dell Equallogic iSCSI storage with Broadcom NIC . Didn't meet umount filesystem hang .
QE is now trying to install RHEL5.5 onto NetApp iSCSI with Broadcom NIC . Then will decide whether it would be a blocker bug after collecting needed info.

serial console log for reproducer with initscript changed with set -x in /etc/rc
This is a comparation file for installation onto NetApp iSCSI storage. In the file , there are three-time installation process. The last one is the reproducer which is the PXE auto installation. The other part is the record for automatic installation from CDROM .

For comment#9, I have submit a new bug for kernel panic issue.
Original issue looks like a duplicate of bug 583218, next RHEV-H 5.6 build will pick initscript-8.45.33-1.el5
I try to reproduce the bug on the same machine intel-5205-32-1 and the same storage (Netapp iSCSI storage), didn't reproduce the hang issue, test matrix:
Build auto-install-by times
5.5-220.127.116.11 pxe 8
5.5-18.104.22.168 usb 2
5.5-2.2.1 cdrom 2
5.5-22.214.171.124 pxe 1
5.5-126.96.36.199 pxe 2
5.6.4 pxe 3
5.6-5.1 pxe 2
5.6-6.1 pxe 4
5.6-6.1 usb 1
then, I did not reproduce the issue over 20 times.
Tried this bug about 15 times on build 5.6-7, did not reproduce, seems fixed.
Close this bug currently as it's low rate reproduciable bug and will reopen it if encounter future.

Clarify: I reproduced the bug on build 5.5-188.8.131.52 once, not every time.
According to comment 17 and comment 18, change it to 'Verified'

On machines with the Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5708 Gigabit Ethernet controller, an automatic installation of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor on a NetApp iSCSI storage could stop responding during an attempt to restart the machine. With this update, this error no longer occurs, and the automatic installation no longer fails to reboot the computer.
