    Thanks for all the replies. This issue was corrected when I rebooted the
    machine. Even after the reboot I had to manually mount the /export/home
    filesystem even though it is listed in the /etc/vfstab file. I will be
    doing some more troubleshooting to see why this happened. As a few of
    the people suggested, I didn't see any user using the fs from the fuser
    and lsof output. I also checked to see if the filesystem was already
    mounted from the df -k output and it was not. Since, I was the only one
    logged in, I checked if my working dir was under /export/home and it was
    not. Truly bizarre. Thanks for all the help from the below persons.

    I am not able to mount a FS even though it is listed in the vfstab file.
    Message it give me when I tried to mount is
    /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s5 is already mounted, /export/home is busy, or the
    allowable number of mount points has exceeded. FSCK's on the FS runs ok
    without any errors. Hardware analysis of the disk came through fine. I
    am running Solaris 9.

    What could be wrong?
