Re: nfs issue

What do you get with the command:

bdf /homes/userid

The message indicates that /homes/userid is not a mounted filesystem. Perhaps /homes is the mountpoint? Or /homes is really spelled /home?

Re: nfs issue

You need to

# umount /homes

then.

Trying to umount a directory under a mount point won't work.
