Mountpoint is already mounted

Hi ,

We have a mountpoint , which was unmounted for some reason and now when we are trying to mount it its showing its already mounted , allowable mountpoints exceeded .

 

Checked through lsof , fuser -cu  nothing is showing .

Its NFS server any other solution other than reboot .

 

Mountpoints was not nfs mounted ..it was normal mountpoint .

Another work around for this issue which works fine is to delete the mointpoint  and re-create it and just do mount -a .

Hi ,

 

We had tried that too.

Even it was not working , later found that one of our sysadmin had ctrl-c'd it , since mounting took a bit time say 1 min and he panicked .

We should never do cntc-c while running such commands , let it fail and wait for the errors :)
