UX:vxfs command: ERROR: V-3-21264: message

Description:

The attempt to mount a VxFS file system has failed because either the volume being mounted or the directory which is to be the mount point is busy.

The reason that a VxVM volume could be busy is if the volume is in a shared disk group and the volume is currently being accessed by a VxFS command, such as fsck, on a node in the cluster.

One reason that the mount point could be busy is if a process has the directory open or has the directory as its current directory.

Another reason that the mount point could be busy is if the directory is NFS-exported.

Recommended action:

For a busy mount point, if a process has the directory open or has the directory as its current directory, use the fuser command to locate the processes and either get them to release their references to the directory or kill the processes. Afterward, attempt to mount the file system again.

If the directory is NFS-exported, unexport the directory, such as by using unshare mntpt on the Solaris operating system. Afterward, attempt to mount the file system again.
