umount -f /mountpoint, and remount it. The only thing I know of that can cause an entire mountpoint to go stale is if the server gets rebooted with a new kernel and it can't determine which filesystem an incoming request is for. Connectivity issues shouldn't cause this. > I should really do this mount with tcp, of course, but found no way > to get a running nfsd to also start accepting tcp (nfsd runs with "-n > 6 -u", no -t).

Just bounce nfsd after changing nfs_server_flags in rc.conf. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
