    Umount Busy NFS...


    I have a fedora 3 server. its /home is a NFS share from other server.

    the server usually busy.

    What can I do to umount its /home while it is used by users without reboot it??

    You can do a lazy unmount:
    Code:
    umount -l /home
    That'll ignore any warnings about being busy. Use it cautiously, though; if your disk cache isn't flushed out before you unmount it, you'll lose any data in the cache.
