  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • There is logic within the mountV111_stop.ksh script to run the
    "fuser -k" command against the provided mount path. Under normal
    circumstances, the root file system path "/" should never be
    provided as an input to the mountV111_stop.ksh script. There is
    however no protection against providing the root file system "/"
    as an input to the mountV111_stop.ksh script.
    
    This APAR addresses this corner case scenario and ensures that
    the mountV111_stop.ksh script will not take any action if the
    root file system "/" is provided as an input to the script.
