Description:

Solution:

Sometimes you will not be able to unload the xofs driver from your system if the driver has open files in use during the uninstall procedure. In this case you may simply reboot the computer or unload xofs driver manually following the below steps:

  1. Check if there are any xofs mount points. cat /etc/xofs_mnttab
  2. Stop all the processes that hold your directory. Use fuser command to discover processes that have open files in your directory. For example:

    fuser -c <dir_from_xofs_mnttab
  3. Use umount command for the directory discovered in step 1. For example:

    umount <dir_from_xofs_mnttab>
  4. Check that no process is using the xofs driver and manually unload it. On each platform follow the appropriate procedure.

On Solaris:

  2. Run the following command: modinfo|grep xofs 
  3. Use modunload to manually unload xofs driver.

    Run the following command: modunload -i <xofs ID>

  2. To check whether xofs is loaded into kernel,

    Run as root the following command: echo lke | kdb| grep xofs 
  3. To unload xofs driver run as root the following command:

    /opt/CAXOsoft/bin/xoctl u /opt/CAXOsoft/bin/xofs.ext
