"which"? There's only one, I believe: turn off the client.

Oh, and I should mention, if you're doing this with vanilla 1.4.14 and
earlier clients, you also want to at least make an effort to kill
anything accessing AFS before you umount it. You can do that with a

fuser -s STOP -c /afs
fuser -k -c /afs

If you turn off or reboot the machine with commands like 'reboot', init
scripts and SMF are bypassed. So, if you try to umount /afs in an init
script, it's not going to help you if that's how you reboot machines. In
that scenario, this workaround doesn't work.
