RE: unable to unmount

Title: RE: unable to unmount

I'm just a bit confused about that stuff, too...
I suppose your nfsd daemon is not considering access to your cdrom device until there is a nfs request to mount it. You could issue an "lsof" command on your nfs daemon before and after a nfs mount request on it, and a while then, to compare.

With the exportfs trick, I only suggest you force the nfs daemon to release any access it _could_ have on the cdrom device.



I have just one more question. This problem wouldnt happen if I just
mount the cdrom on the server, use it locally and after sometime
I can unmount it. Then also nfsd should be accessing it as /cdrom
is there in my exports list and preventing me from umounting?

I am confused... Could you clarify,
