Issue

Mounting a filesystem fails with mount point busy, allowable number of mount points exceeded message.

VxFS or CFS Mount fails with the following error message:

Aug  7 11:37:29 root@serv1 filesystem.sh[2321]: Mounting /dev/vx/dsk/ignitedg/var_ignite_vol with option -o rw,largefiles,delaylog
UX:vxfs mount: ERROR: V-3-21264: /dev/vx/dsk/ignitedg/var_ignite_vol is already mounted, /var/opt/ignite is busy,
				 or the allowable number of mount points has been exceeded.

The mount command would succeed on a newly created temporary mount point.

Workaround

# mv /var/opt/ignite /var/opt/ignite.bad
# mkdir /var/opt/ignite

# mount -F vxfs -o cluster /dev/vx/dsk/ignitedg/var_ignite_vol /var/opt/ignite (for CFS)
# rm -rf /var/opt/ignite.bad

OR

# mount -F vxfs /dev/vx/dsk/ignitedg/var_ignite_vol /var/opt/ignite (for VxFS)
