bdf hanging

Dear Folks,
let me thanks for all the comments and help send to me previously.my question for today is.

a EVA storage disk by the storage team was released from a NFS before unmounting and exporting the file system. i guess the syntax that needed to be executed before releasing the disk as below was planned

1)lsof /xxx
2) umount the file system
umount /xxx
3)vgchange -a n /dev/yyy
4)vgexport -m filename -s -p -v yyy
5)pvremove /dev/rdsk/zzz
6) remove the entry from /etc/fstab
/dev/yyy/lvol1 /xxx vxfs delaylog,largefiles,nodatainlog 0 2
7) rmsf -H

so wat do i do to bring the system back to stability and bdf should execute instead of hanging from the filesystem, which was released from the disk? thanks in advance

Re: bdf hanging

The only way I've ever gotten out of this was to reboot. Newer versions (11.31?) may have a force option to the umount command, though. You should check the man page for umount.

Re: bdf hanging

how about /etc/exports ??
have remove "entries" also from them >>????

if still "bdf" hangs

# mv /etc/mnttab /etc/mnttab
# mount -a
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

>Johnson: how about /etc/exports?

Yes, you would have to "exportfs -u" or unshare(1m) to stop exporting them. And remove them from that file.

>if still bdf hangs: # mv /etc/mnttab /etc/mnttab; mount -a

I doubt this will help since it needs to be unmounted.

Re: bdf hanging

none of the above helped guys, tried mv the etc/mnttab, commented the etc/export, but nope, still bdf hangs when reading the file system.

Re: bdf hanging

if you sure it did not work, tried to forcefully umount if it exist in /etc/mnttab by
umount -f or vxumount (doubt NFS would umount)

u can unshare and then clear the nfs locks..with
clear_locks server_name
clear_locks -s server_name

then run bdf.

Reboot would always work :)

Re: bdf hanging

Thanks folks, it worked after forced unmounting the file system and mounted all after moving the mnttab.
