    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

    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 :)
