Remount using fstab entries

SkyHi @ Thursday, May 23, 2013

7.1.2. Remounting the File Systems

After adding the usrquota and/or grpquota options, remount each file system whose fstab entry has been modified. If the file system is not in use by any process, use one of the following methods:
  • Issue the umount command followed by the mount command to remount the file system.(See the manpage for both umount and mount for the specific syntax for mounting and unmounting various filesystem types.)
  • Issue the mount -o remount  command (where  is the name of the file system) to remount the file system. For example, to remount the /home file system, the command to issue is mount -o remount /home.
If the file system is currently in use, the easiest method for remounting the file system is to reboot the system.
