Well the R means that the helepr os locked by a client connection id-way
through the authentication handshake. It is a legitimate state to be in
when the rotate or any other reason shutdown is scheduled, but should
have completed within a few seconds, maybe a minute if your AD or client
is acting very slowly.

If you don't mind breaking any legitimate client connections that is an
option. I suggest you wait a full minute after any rotate or reconfigure
to minimize the problems though.
