B.5 DISMOUNT (NetWare)

Use at the server console to make a volume unavailable to users.

B.5.1 Syntax

dismount volumename

B.5.2 Option




Specifies the name of the volume you want to dismount.

B.5.3 Notes

  • Dismount allows you to maintain or repair a volume and to upgrade disk drivers while the NetWare server is up.

  • Use this command to dismount all volumes residing on a removable drive before you remove the drive.

  • If you are running out of memory and cannot add more RAM, consider dismounting a volume that is used infrequently.

    Mounted volumes take up memory allocated for file caching and thus affect server performance. NSS volumes use much less memory than Traditional volumes.
