mount and umount
Authored by: stev0621 on Jan 23, '03 09:41:44AM

If you simply type: mount
in the terminal it will give you a list of everything mounted on your system including shares. The shares generally show up at the bottom like: //USER@MACHINE/SHARE on /Volumes/SHARE. Should you want to unmount a share simply tpe: umount /Volumes/SHARE

This tip can also help if the share is not properly unmounted when you eject it. If you have connected to a share, disconnected, and tried to reconnect later you may receive an error something like this:
Connecting to smb://YOURSERVER/YOURSHARE
An error has occured (error = -47)
This typically means that the share did not unmount properly. It may not be visible on your Desktop, but if you use the mount command you will see that it is still mounted under the /Volumes directory. Simply unmount via the umount command then try remapping the drive.
