How do I restart NFS server when network link goes down between two servers or NFS client / server under CentOS 4.x / RHEL / CentOS Linux 5.x?
The simplest and easiest way to stop and start (do not use restart option) NFS server under RHEL / CentOS / Fedora / Red Hat Linux is to use the init script located at /etc/init.d/ directory. Forceful umount command may result into more problems such as unresponsive NFS server and cold reboot may only solves the problem.
