Unmount CIFS before Network Manager stops…

Always having this problem when using network-manager and shutdown or reboot my computer while some CIFS shares still connected. I tried various fixes but still no help for me.  Until I got this link, which works like a charm for me.

Here’s how:

1.  Open a terminal and invoke the following command:

 $> sudo gedit /etc/init/network-manager.conf

2.  Just after the line which contain the work “description”, add the following

pre-stop script
   trap "Caught TERM Signal" TERM
   /etc/init.d/umountnfs.sh
   trap - TERM
end script

3. Restart your system while CIFS still mounted to check if the changes works.

4. Done.

Solution 2:

In case the first solution fails, here’s another way  to fix this:

1.  Open the file /etc/init/network-manager.conf.

2. Look and replace  “stop on stopping dbus” with “stop on stopping umountnfs”

3. Done.
