bdf locks up

Hello All,
Long time troll looking for an answer I can't find.
I'm running bdf and when it's almost complete, it stops.
Can't control break out, can't kill the pid..etc.
hp ux box version B.11.23
thanks for any help.

Re: bdf locks up

It's likely a stale NFS mount that is hard-mounted.

From a separate session, do a "mount -p | grep nfs", and see which host isn't pingable...

Thanks Earl,
I tried that but to no avail. Eventually ended up rebooting the box. I believe it was actually a stale mount but it didn't show.
Thanks.

if you have a stale NFS this would also hang. Look for the line where bdf stops, and compare it with a "cat /etc/mnttab". If the next line which would be shown is an NFS, then you've got the stale one. Anyway, this should also be visible in syslog...
