1 Sorry, that wasn't much of a problem description...
3 I have a system that I often manually mount and unmount some NFS mounts...
5 If I try to do a reboot or shutdown of the system while one of these NFS
6 mounts is mounted, it hangs with the last thing showing on the screen as
7 "Unmounting /var..."
9 I've let it sit there for at least half an hour, maybe more, so I don't
10 think it would ever continue...
12 If I remember to manually unmount the NFS mount before initiating the
13 reboot/shutdown, it doesn't hang.
15 I'm guessing that it hangs at /var because it is the last mountpoint
16 defined in my /etc/fstab?
18 So... any pointers on where to look for a resolution would be appreciated.
20 Resolution being, if I can manually unmount it fine, why can't the
21 system auto-unmount it?
23 Thanks,
25 Charles
