Hello Prashant,

>>>>NFS server (pid712@/net) not responding still trying
Check the Network Settings at both the end (NFS Server & Client). Your NFS Client is not able to get the NFS Server over Network or vice-versa.

Fix the Networking on either end and let me know the outcome.

This is the automounter not responding. If you actually need AutoFS you could try troubleshooting it by sending the running daemon a SIGUSR2 signal and looking at the messages logged to /var/adm/automount.log. If you don't need AutoFS then disable it in the /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf file.

Re: NFS server (pid712@/net) not responding still trying

If you're running an OS prior to 11.31 you can try doing an:

/sbin/init.d/nfs.client stop

followed by

/sbin/init.d/nfs.client start

If you're running 11.31 the AutoFS subsystem has its own stop/start script so the commands would be:

/sbin/init.d/autofs stop
/sbin/init.d/autofs start

Hopefully that will gracefully restart the AutoFS processes correctly.

Re: NFS server (pid712@/net) not responding still trying

if nfs.client stop then start sequence failed, unfortunately, the only thing left to solve your problem is to reboot the machine. Sorry to be the bearer of the bad news.

Re: NFS server (pid712@/net) not responding still trying

Mel is correct, but you might be able to forcibly start AutoFS and get rid of these messages without rebooting. It's worth a shot anyway.

What I would do is use "ps -ef" and look for automountd and then kill it if possible. If it won't die with a regular kill you shouldn't bother with kill -9 because that usually leaves the system in a state where AutoFS won't work anyway (I'm starting to wonder if that's what your colleague did to get into this mess).

If you can cleanly kill automountd then I would try manually starting it (/usr/sbin/automountd) and then issue the /usr/sbin/automount command. If those work then you can try to manually unmount any NFS filesystems managed by AutoFS and then unmount any AutoFS filesystems:

# umountall -F nfs
# umountall -F autofs

If you can get rid of all the NFS and AutoFS filesystems then you might be able to salvage the system without a reboot.
