Re: [tlug] NFS export issue

Hash: SHA1

To find out which processes are mounting /home you can use fstat or fuser
(depending upon the OS) on the client.  Kill these proceeses to unmount
the directory.

Is the user ID or jmglov 141 (and how are you keeping track of users?).

Instead of hard mounting you may wish to look into using amd or something
to control mounts of the directories.  This will make things easier if you
are looking to expand.  amd also runs on Solaris/BSD/Linux and there are
also amutils can be used to convert the Solaris maps to amd style.
