as part of there is currently mdadm update available from xenial-proposed and zesty-proposed that might resolve this issue.

To test that solution please perform the following:

1) Install mdadm from xenial-proposed/zesty-proposed
   - See
   - Or download & install packages from

2) $ sudo apt install dracut-core

3) $ sudo systemctl enable mdadm-shutdown.service

4) $ sudo systemctl start mdadm-shutdown.service

After this the expectation is for shutdown/reboots to perform clean a shutdown, maintaining the raid array in a synced state, such that it comes up clean.

Please let me know if above resolves shutdown/reboot issues for you.
