Device or resource busy??

Hi,

I'm trying to do a sharity mount to mount a terastation network drive.

I'm getting a Device or resource busy message after my mount command. Please see output below...

# /usr/local/sharity3/bin/sharity mount smb://labbackup01/bakup_data /mnt/labbackup01

Device or resource busy.
Error Context: returned by mount task.


Anyone know what could cause device busy message upon a mount command? I've seen this before on unmount, but never on mount.


thanks,

Hi,

are you sure the mount point isn't in use?

Hi pen,

It didn't look like the mount was in use. When I type 'mount' the mount point that I specified doesn't show up. I tried a different mount point and I successfully mounted the network drive.

thanks for your help.
