Kexec Reboot Network Issue

I'm currently using the following string:

kexex --type=elf-x86_64 --args-linux -l /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-12.el5 
--initrid=/boot/initrd-2.6.18-128.el6.img --append="`cat /proc/cmdline`"
kexec -e

Some times we can get to the box from any subnet, other times we can 
only get to the box from the same subnet only. Our solution to this is 
to down the iface and then restart networking. Has anyone else run into 
this issue?
