FC4 automount not unmounting
I am having problems with automounting samba shares on an FC4 box. The problem is as follows:

Automounting works fine immediately after reboot, here is the relevant line from the /etc/auto.master

/smb    /etc/auto.smb --timeout=60 --ghost
and from /etc/auto.smb

video          -fstype=smbfs,uid=500,umask=0000,fmask=777,dmask=000,username=xxxx,password=xxxx      ://
If the windows machine is switched off the shares are not unmounted and once it is restarted the shares are no longer available.
There are many smb_add_request timeouts in the dmesg output.
Rebooting the linux box will fix the problem until the windows box is switched off again.

In rebooting FC4 there is a [FAILED] message for NFS lock daemon.

Attempting to use /sbin/service autofs stop gives the error

Stopping automount:umount2: Device or resource busy
umount: /smb: device is busy

Can anyone help?

I know it looks like a well-worn topic but I can't find a solution to this particluar issue in this forums.

Not sure what the problem was but I have fixed it by stopping the smbd (and nmbd) services and just leaving autofs running.
