Unmounting stale NFS mount points in Linux

Sometimes, a stale NFS mount point can be a real PITA,┬áspecially if you can’t mount the share somewhere else.

The following command line have helped me a lot lately:

umount -f -l /path/to/nfs/share

The first parameter forces umount, the second makes a “lazy umount”, detaching the filesystem and cleaning up all references.

Easy isn’t it?
