5.9   Lost printhost mount

When a machine can't print, and gives some cruft like this:
Read_file_list: cannot stat required or included file /fs/lprng/etc/printcap - Stale NFS file handle

it can be fixed (using sudo) by issuing the following command.
    sudo /bin/umount /fs/lprng

The automounter should then remount /fs/lprng when it's referenced with the next print request.

If that doesn't work there's always rebooting the machine (for multiuser machines, like the Linux only boxes, rebooting should be your last choice).
