I/O Error on directory previously mounted by smbmount
Posted on 2001-06-07
(Red Hat; Samba 2.0.7)
I mounted (as a user; not as root) a directory from the windows network neigborhood onto a directory named "Zip", like so:
~>smbmount //Snorrie/Zip Zip
Unfortunately, I forgot to unmount the directory before shutting down "Snorrie" and pressing "Yes" on the message "There are 1 user(s) connected to your computer. (...) Do you want to continue?"
Now when I want to use the directory it says:
ls: .: I/O Error
I can't delete, move, rename, mount or unmount it. Can you find some way to undo this? Preferably without haveing to go superuser, because my system manager is a bit grumpy and doesn't really understand Linux.
