If it says it's busy, then the filesystem is in use.  You weren't by chance
trying to umount while in the directory?  while another filesystem was
mounted on GFS?

gulm_tool getstats <servername> | grep quorum

This will tell you what it has and needs for quorum.

I had exported a GFS file system as NFS to node2. node3 now accesses via samba the GFS file system on node2 (node2 uses NFS). So it is GFS(node1)-->NFS(node2)-->SAMBA(node3). I was unable to save files from node3 onto GFS filesystem. This has left many smbd daemons on node2 in 'D' state (Disk Sleep). The samba daemons might be holding some locks... but it is not clear. I restarted all the nodes and cluster is fine. How do I check if there are any file corruptions? using gfs_fsck?
