>I commented the respective entry in the /etc/fstab and /etc/mnttab

No need to edit mnttab since that is generated by the kernel.

mnttab(4) implies that syncer(1m) will update mnttab every 30 seconds. So if you edit it, it will be put back. It also says if removed, it will recreate it. You may try renaming it to see what it puts back. Note the WARNINGS in mnttab(4).

So if editing mnttab did work for bdf, it wouldn't work for long.

As mentioned by Robert-Jan, you need to be on a newer OS or you have to reboot. And you already edited fstab.

Yes, if the following umount doesn't work.

# umount -h kedidi -a

You don't mix -a with -h.
And I think you have tried it and it failed, so just edit /etc/fstab to remove them then reboot.

check the
1. df -k
2. check whether there is any NFS file system mounted.
3. umount /mnt.
4. remove any entry made in /etc/fstab for NFS file system for that particular file sytsem.

Mr Rajit,
When I tried to umount, it says:

# umount /backup
nfs umount: nfs_unmount: /backup: is busy

# fuser -cu /backup
/backup:

# uname -a
HP-UX puyuh B.11.00 A 9000/898 687663371 two-user license

I can't reboot the server, since the application are running some processses. If i can't really do, i have to wait till they allow us to do restart
