Hi All
I need to unmount a nfs share on a solaris server because the NFS server is down.

I tried
umount -f /share but it just freezes

I also tried
fuser -c /share to see what process might be using it..and that freezes too

Any guidance please ?

The thing is that
fuser -k remoteserver:/ does not work because remoteserver is down

Hi,

But fuser is supposed to work on your server to identify processes that are having open files on that filesystem and then kill it. This is read from your server memory and not from the remote server.
