Re: NFS Busy

In the case that the system is expecting an NFS server (you have filesystems mounted from a remote NFS server?).

if this is the case then (depending on the setup in the /etc/fstab) it can wait forever.

Can you boot to sinle user mode (boot -s) and list the /etc/fstab? if you have filesystems there like:

server:/path/to/dir /local/path nfs <...>

then you know you have NFS filesystems, uncomment them to allow the system to boot into multi user and fix the problem.

Possible problems: (if above is the case)
- You NFS server is down
- The NFS server listed in fstab is wrong
- You have no network
