    NFS mount


    I have these 2 NFS mount points exported from a NAS filer
    mount point: /backup/backup_data
    mount point: /backup/backup_data/log

    My issue is when I have created the dirs on my SUSE Linux NFS Client host and mount them I cannot unmount /backup/backup_data without needing to first unmout /backup/backup_data/log

    How can I isolate both these mount points as they can be mounted\unmounted independently. I should be able to unmount /backup/backup_data without needing to unmount /backup/backup_data/log

    Hi and welcome

    as long as the log directory is within the data mountpoint: You cant.
    I would suggest to have the data and log directory in /backup, ie: /backup/data and /backup/log and configure the backup tool accordingly.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
