I'm not on the console -- but a coworker told me the system had disk errors on boot. All of the partitions seem to have mounted successfully except /export/home.

Whenever I try to mount that partion, I get the following error:

# mount /export/home

mount: /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s7 is already mounted, /export/home is busy, or the allowable number of mount points has been exceeded

How do I troubleshoot this?

This can be closed -- someone was in the /export/home folder.
