Data How can I tell if a filesystem is NFS mounted?

I would like to know if there is a command or set of commands that I can run to verify that there are no 'extraneous' nfs mounted filesystems on our server. I didn't see anything in doing a search on NFS.

We think that we may have some filesystems that are still nfs mounted when the link should have been broken a while ago but we're not sure because we can't verify this conclusively.
We are using AIX 4.3

mount -a will show all mount points defined in fstab

You also will need to check the fstab or vfstab file to ensure that none are configured there as well.

You can have some configured manually that will go away when you umount them, but if any are in the fstab they will remount upon a reboot.

also do your equivalent of df -k or bdf to see what all is mounted and umount the offending ones.

If you are running Solaris just type the command mount. This will list what is currently mounted on your local machine. Or taking a peek in the vfstab file will help.
