Help unable to shutdown- RPC problems

I seem to have consistent problems shuting down whichever init state I use

basically I get the following errors messages followed by a return to the prompt

# shutdown -i6 -g0 -y

Shutdown started. Tue Oct 1 09:47:03 BST 2002

Broadcast Message from root (pts/1) on hermione Tue Oct 1 09:47:04...
THE SYSTEM IS BEING SHUT DOWN NOW ! ! !
Log off now or risk your files being damaged

showmount: hermione: RPC: Program not registered
Changing to init state 6 - please wait

I have no ideas whats causing this can anyone help?

If your host is not an nfs server, this message is not a big deal and you can ignore it.

If your host is an nfs server, this message means that something is wrong with mountd. As a result of this, your shutdown message will not be broadcast to any other systems which have remote mounted and of your local filesystems. That still is not a big deal in itself, but you need to investgate why your mountd has failed. Prior to the shutdown you were running an nfs server without a functioning mountd. That means that if the nfs clients had rebooted they could not remount the filesystems.

# shutdown -y -i6 -g0

Shutdown started. Tue Oct 1 13:34:51 BST 2002

Then one of your shutdown scripts is hanging. If you can still do a "ps -ef" you can probably figure out which one. Is that is not possible, you will need to add logging to each shutdown script to see how far you get.

Then you need to figure out why it's hanging and fix it.
