Question regarding mount/umount

Post by jacks.. » Thu, 03 Nov 2005 04:24:44



In one unix box (A):

I type mount, it shows
/dir1/subdir1  MACHINE1:/vol/vol0/dir1/subdir1

In another unix box(B):

It shows:
/dir1/subdir1  MACHINE1:/vol/vol3/dir1/subdir1

In box A, command under /dir1/subdir1 works,
In Box B, doesn't work

So I try to do the same mount in B.

I typed:
mount /dir1/subdir1  MACHINE1:/vol/vol0/dir1/subdir1
mount /dir1/subdir1  /vol/vol0/dir1/subdir1

Bot get mount-point doesn't exist.

Then I think might need to unmount first
So in B

umount /dir1/subdir1

I got umount: /dir1/subdir1 is busy

I am not using that directory, any suggestion?

"command?"  Is this something stored, perchance, on
MACHINE1:/vol/vol0/dir1/subdir1 (which isn't mounted
on box B)?

Isn't that backwards?  i.e.:
mount   MACHINE1:/vol/vol0/dir1/subdir1 /dir1/subdir1

Perhaps you cd'd into it in a shell somewhere?
