Re: [Linux-cluster] RHEL/CentOS-6 HA NFS Configuration Question



Sadly that doesn't work (usually). With nfsd the filesystem will still
refuse to umount (despite the force) as it's locked in kernel space
(where nfsd lives). And the service will just go to failed.

The best you can so is the probably self_fence="1" which is pretty
brutal and halts the node with the stuck fs mount, I believe.
