This procedure describes how to mount and unmount remote and local file systems.
Mounting makes file systems, files, directories, devices, and special files available for use at a particular location in the file tree. It is the only way a file system is made accessible to users.
Check the file systems before mounting by using the procedure Verifying File Systems or running the fsck command.
|Mounting or Unmounting a File System Tasks|
|Web-based System Manager File System (application)||Type wsm, then select File Systems|
|Task||SMIT Fast Path|
|Mount a Journaled File System (JFS)
or an enhaced journaled file system (JFS2)
|Unmount a File System on a Fixed Disk||smit umountfs|
|Unmount a File System on a Removeable Disk||smit umntdsk|
Note: If an unmount fails, it might be because a user or process has an opened file in the file system being unmounted. The fuser command lets you know which user or process might be causing the failure.
