    I decided to play with iSCSI and liked it enough to keep using.
    I don't reboot much so it didn't appear to be related to iSCSI until I did a
    lot of checking.
    The computer will hang at the "shutting down" screen forever until the power
    button is pushed.
    If I log off from the the iSCSI tareget first the computer
    restarts/shutsdown normally.

    I'm using Vista Ultimate and a FreeBSD iSCSI target.

    Sounds like some of the storage stack related request(s) never get(s)
    completed... Did you try to use other iSCSI target? Just to isolate
    the issue.

    No I didn't try another. It's a FreeNAS server I've been using for quite
    awhile. I only tried since it was built into Vista.
    I don't have another target.

    If you're not willing (or cannot) swap the target try swapping
    initiator =) The only one I know for Windows (except
    MS one of course) is StarPort from Rocket Division Software. Here we
    are:

    If you'll have the same problem with the shutdown it could be some
    filter driver causing problems (anti virus, logical
    volume manager, snapshot agent etc).

    Swapping targets is not really an option. I did update FreeNAS to a nightly
    build with a newer target but haven't tried shutting down, I updated late
    last night.
    I did isolate AV and firewalls I switched and even removed both to try.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I've told to swap INITIATOR and not a TARGET :)
