iptables hangs when shutting down system
Last modified: 2010-07-30 17:49:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Every time I go to shut down my RHEL-6 system, iptables hangs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'sudo reboot', and watch log go by
Log hangs with:
ip6tables: Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
ip6tables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
ip6tables: Unloading modules: [ OK ]
iptables: Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
iptables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: mangle nat filte[ OK ]
iptables: Unloading modules:
reboot should succeed
Don't know if libvirt has anything to do with it, but I do know that having libvirtd running causes some iptables manipulations.
