    Hi,
    I used to share files between a Linux server and my MacBook using SMB and NFS. My Linux HD used to mount as minty in the Finder sidebar.

    Now I don't require file sharing between the two and so I don't use it. But I keep getting console messages saying "09/09/2011 12:05:29.173 com.apple.automountd: mount_nfs: can't mount /harshad from 192.168.1.4 onto /Volumes/minty: Host is down
    "

    There is a folder named minty in /Volumes. How to get rid of it? I tried deleting using Finder as well as Terminal, no success.

    PS: I'm noob in networking

    Never mind. I solved it. This Apple whitepaper helped: http://images.apple.com/business/docs/Autofs.pdf

    Solution:
    Launch Directory Utility
    Select Directory Editor
    Select "Mounts" from the "Viewing" drop-down list
    Delete the mount

    I spent the past few days poking my brain with terminal commands and conf/plist files, and the solution was just 3 mouse clicks :D
