Mount will fail, monitor /var/log/messages for conversion status, will sit at "RPL_Upgrade: 0% complete (1 of 5103 IEL blocks)" for hours then show the rest of the % complete).
RPL conversion time:
5.2 million files took about 9 hours or 0.5 million files per hour.
1.4 million files took about 3 hours 15 min or 0.43 million files per hour.
