Issue With NAS Path

I'm hoping someone else has seen this weird behavior with NAS paths and can shed some light on the issue. What I am currently experiencing is constant errors issuing to the actlog of my library controller instance caused by a failed mount/dismount for an NDMP backup. The TSM instance has been rebooted and the path put offline but I am still getting these errors:

The problem is that support wants me to reboot my Powderhorn, which is just not feasible. ACSLS is not showing anything in the drive and that the drive is available so I don't see how it's a library/ACSLS issue.

My Lack of Recent Posts

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I would like to let all TSMExpert visitors know I am currently going through some personal issues that have been very hard on me and have been and will continue to take my attentions elsewhere for the next few months. I thank those contributing in the meantime in advance and hope to get back to blogging as soon as I can.
