Filesystem Timeouts (a mini HOW-TO)
Authored by: phc on Jan 23, '03 02:49:27AM

I'll have to keep this tip in mind next time I mount shares remotely as I just happened to run into this exact problem the other day.

In the event that you use mount_smbfs without any options...

umount ./theShare

also works; but as I discovered everything had locked up, I had to login from a different computer and issue "umount". And then a restart fixed everything.
