#StackBounty: #mount #vpn #nfs #openconnect How to get openconnect to unmount a partition when VPN closes?

Bounty: 100

I have this entry in my fstab:

sc-netapp48.nvidia.com:/vol/scratch9/scratch.securesign_new /home/scratch.securesign_new nfs _netdev,comment=systemd.automount 0 0

I’m not sure how this works exactly, but when I’m on the VPN and need to access /home/scratch.securesign_new, it magically shows up.

However, when I disconnect from the VPN, it appears that /home/scratch.securesign_new is still mounted. This causes all sorts of problems. For example, whenever I install a program, the installer tries to access /home/scratch.securesign_new/.config, which doesn’t exist.

So I need to be able to "umount -l /home/scratch.securesign_new" when the VPN closes. How do I do that? I tried adding a script in /etc/network/if-down.d/, but that script is not executed when the VPN closes.

I’m running Kubuntu 20.04.
