Mount issue please help

Hi all

I have a mount issue, that is as follows:

somebody as mount a certain file system
Code:
/sim5

on
Code:
/

, so when I do
Code:
df -h /sim5

it returns
Code:
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d10        9.6G   7.0G   2.6G    74%    /

, which is the same as
Code:
 df -h /
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d10        9.6G   7.0G   2.6G    74%    /

I try to unmount
Code:
umount /sim5

, but that did not workout
Code:
mount: warning: /sim5 not in mnttab

and if I try
Code:
mount /dev/dsk/c4t24d0s6 /sim5
mount: I/O error
mount: Cannot mount /dev/dsk/c4t24d0s6

Please can you help in this situation

How do you conclude that a file system was mounted on /sim5 ? It does not seem to follow from the commands that you posted:

You commands show,
Code:
df -h /sim5

returns
Code:
Code:
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d10        9.6G   7.0G   2.6G    74%    /

So the mount is on / , not on /sim5

Code:
root@mcelvasp3 # df -h /sim5
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d10        9.6G   7.0G   2.6G    74%    /
root@mcelvasp3 # df -h /
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d10        9.6G   7.0G   2.6G    74%    /
root@mcelvasp3 #

They look similar to me

possible a reboot would work, but at this stage I would not like to reboot

That is a directory which resides under / (root) filesystem.
# 5  
Peasant and I are saying that there does not seem to be a mount of /sim5. The output of the commands you posted indicate that /sim5 is just a directory in the root filesystem...
# 6  
Have a look at the output of lsblk.
It should print a list of partitions, and their used mountpoints.

Please post the output of:

Code:
# mount

to tell us what the system thinks is mounted.

Also, what O/S is this?
