NAME         top

       umount.nfs, umount.nfs4 - unmount a Network File System

SYNOPSIS         top

       umount.nfs dir [-fvnrlh ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       umount.nfs and umount.nfs4 are a part of nfs(5) utilities
       package, which provides NFS client functionality.

       umount.nfs4 and umount.nfs are meant to be used by the umount(8)
       command for unmounting NFS shares. This subcommand, however, can
       also be used as a standalone command with limited functionality.

       dir is the directory on which the file system is mounted.

OPTIONS         top

       -f     Force unmount the file system in case of unreachable NFS

       -v     Be verbose.

       -n     Do not update /etc/mtab.  By default, an entry is created
              in /etc/mtab for every mounted file system. Use this
              option to skip deleting an entry.

       -r     In case unmounting fails, try to mount read-only.

       -l     Lazy unmount. Detach the file system from the file system
              hierarchy now, and cleanup all references to the file
              system as soon as it is not busy anymore.

       -h     Print help message.
