ProcedureHow to Unmount a CIFS Share From a Directory You Own

To successfully unmount a share, you must own the mount point on which the share is mounted.

  1. Determine the mount point of the share that you want to unmount.

    Use one of the following commands to find shares that are mounted from a CIFS server:

    • Use the mount command.

      $ mount -v | grep 'type smbfs'
      //root@solarsystem/tmp on /mnt type smbfs read/write/setuid/devices/dev=5080000
        on Tue Feb 12 11:40:18 2008
      //root@solarsystem/files on /files type smbfs read/write/setuid/devices/dev=4800000
        on Mon Feb 11 22:17:56 2008
    • Use the df -k -F smbfs command.

      $ df -k -F smbfs
      //root@solarsystem/tmp      1871312   70864 1800448     4%    /mnt
      //root@solarsystem/files    8067749    8017 7979055     1%    /files
  2. Unmount the share by specifying the name of the mount point, /mnt or /files in the previous step.

    For example:

    $ umount /mnt
