Thanks to all who replied. I guess that the answer was simple, under
normal circumstances anyway. The normal procedure is to use umount . The
problem I have is that I needed to umount some home directories. I tell
the users that I need to umount them, so they log off. After they have
already logged off, I get the error message that states "/somedir: busy"
. So, for my purpose the most helpful suggestion came from Charles
# fuser -c /some/directoy
It will return the PID of precesses using it. See if you can kill them
and go back to "umount".
Thank you to all of you who replied.
