Description John Horne 2006-06-06 10:33:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to unmount a cifs share gives error that it only unmounts cifs filesystems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount a cifs share on to the system.
2. Try to umount the share.
Actual results:
Error displayed:
  This utility only unmounts cifs filesystems.
  This utility only unmounts cifs filesystems.

Expected results:
No error messages. The share should unmount.

Additional info:
The mount command shows:
   //ilsabc.uopnet.plymouth.ac.uk/Grid on /root/gridshare type cifs 

The umount command command gives:
   umount /root/gridshare
   This utility only unmounts cifs filesystems.
   This utility only unmounts cifs filesystems.

Not sure why it displays it twice.

We cannot now unmount this share at all.

SELinux is disabled on the system (I read that that may be a cause, but not in
this case).

I ran the strace command in case the output was of any help.

I have tried this on a different server running Fedora 8 (using
samba-client-3.0.28a-0.fc8). Unmounting the cifs partition gives no error. As
such I think we can close this call as fixed. (Unfortunately the original server
is still running FC5, but hopefully that will change over the next few months.)

Many thanks,
