  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • GPFS team has published a technote outlining the steps required
    to properly shutdown and restart gpfs daemons -
    https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6118084
    
    This fixes some 'unable to unload kernel module' issues that
    remain persistent even after reboot.
    As per this, we will need to change our 'enter maintenance'
    procedure in Db2 as well.
    

Local fix

  • there are options to rename the module that is not being
    unloaded by the kernel; however, these must be done and verified
    in conjunction with GPFS support only.
