Hard mounts not going away after days of not using.....
I'm running CentOS 5.2 on various Dell machines. I've noticed when I
mount something from another machine to my machine, and after days of
either not using the mount or not "cd"ing into it, the mount is still
mounted on my machine.
I'm unable to paste my output here but it's pretty simple. Here's what
# mount machineA:/vol/vol1 /mnt/test
# cd /mnt/test
At this point a df -k shows my machine has mounted /mnt/test as it
should. However, if I "cd" out of /mnt/test and come back the next
day, another df -k will show my machine still has /mnt/test mounted.
Sure, I could manually umount /mnt/test, but I was hoping there was
some type of config file I could modify to set a timeout for all mounts.
