  2. Bug#477498: general: Unmounting network filesystems solution (for me at least)

    Sound to me like the cifs startup script need to register their pid to
    avoid killall killing them at shutdown. The mechanism is already
    provided by initscripts, now the packages needing it just need to use
    it.

    Which package starts this daemon? This issue should be reassigned
    there.

    Happy hacking,

    Another alternative is to flag the mounted volume in /etc/fstab using
    the _netdev flag, to make sure the volume is umounted by umountnfs.sh
    and not umountfs.sh during shutdown.

    Er, there's no such daemon.

    $ grep cifs /etc/init.d/umountnfs.sh
    nfs|nfs4|smbfs|ncp|ncpfs|cifs|coda|ocfs2|gfs)
    $

    umountnfs.sh already knows that cifs is a network filesystem. And having to
    add a flag to /etc/fstab would be the wrong solution, /because/ cifs is
    always a network filesystem and umountnfs.sh should handle it.

    But in some circumstances, it happens that the network interface is taken
    down before umountnfs.sh is called. This is the case when using NM 0.6 to
    manage your interface (and possibly with later versions, I haven't checked).
    CIFS doesn't like having the network pulled out from under it, leaving these
    long timeouts.
