Re: unable to unmount


What I meant is, even if umount the cdrom drive from the client and then
do a shutdown even, I am unable to umount cdrom from the server. This
typically happens after my remote installation of debian/redhat linuxes.

Theoritically I should be able to unmount without shutting down nfsd  isntit?

My memory says, I was able to do it with my old redhat boxes(rh 4.* and 5.*)
