can't mount because already attached....

Question

Hi

I hope someone can help me

I have a drive that I can't mount because the system is telling me it is already attached to a different computer (actually my pc, the same one I want to mount it to).... how can I fix that?

I can actually confirm this bug as well. The circumstances were very straightforward: I detached the drive from the machine because I had to take it down for a hardware test. When the test was completed, the drive said that it was already attached (to the same machine I detached it from), and I had to force the mount and reindex the drive. This was about a week ago, on 1261. I do not, sadly, have any logs or records from the incident, and the drive functions as normal after the reindex.

EDIT: I should add that attempting to force the mount once actually gave me an error about the cache directory already existing, but forcing it a second time allowed it to mount and start the indexing process.

In any case, something does seem borked with the detach and reattach process.

Perhaps the other person can, but I can't really afford to dismount the drive on a prod server just to test it. Particularly considering that it could lead to downtime of almost an entire day if it dismounts incorrectly again. My apologies. I know that isn't helpful.
