Unmount Command Not Found?


I have a few RHEL 5.6 hosts and when trying to unount a file system I am receiving the following error:

[root@localhost/]# unmount /db/prd05
-bash: unmount: command not found


I am confused, isn't unmount a standard command?

Also tried to look it up:
[root@localhost /]# man unmount
No manual entry for unmount

Don't worry about it - I'm sure we all still occasionally do that.
I often wondered why, but never bothered to look. Just found this.
