Re: mount error

Hi,

I guess the filesystem is not mounted and you are getting this error while trying to mount it. Have you tried deleting the mount point and recreating it.

Can you post these,

ll /dev/*/group
ll /dev/vgp_van_d6

Hope this helps.

Re: mount error


Dear Amit,

Could you check the contents of "mnttab" file , If the entries are present in that file then Filesystems wont get mounted.

You can also "mv" the file mnttab to mnttab.old and try to mount the filesystems.

With Regards,

Siva.

Re: mount error

Hi,

Try the following commands..

#fuser -ku /data/NFX01A/u11
#fuser -ku /data/NFX01A/u03

If u have not made entry in fstab file, made a entry...and mount manually..

#mount /data/NFX01A/u11
@mount /data/NFX01A/u03

Hope this will resolve ur issue..

Cheers

Re: mount error

Amit --

Generally this means that the filesystem was either already mounted or if not mounted, someone has "cd-ed" into the directory. Normally that someone is whoever is trying to troubleshoot the problem or some user who has logged in and started up a process that will try to access that filesystem.

In either case, the fuser -f -ku commands listed above should help.

Re: mount error

Hi,

The only reason visible for this is that your mount point is not free. Fuser can help you to find out the processes using it.

This is quite possible that the application try to look for some file in it and holds it in use. To be ascertain about this you can try mounting your file sytsem on some other path say /test.
