Re-mounted volumes fail to appear on network - Mac Networking

I frequently unmount my G4's second hard drive, only to re-mount it hours/days later on. After that, my networked iMac can't see the volume. I have to restart personal file sharing on the G4 for the volume to appear again on the iMac list of available shares. Thanks for any suggestions on trouble-shooting this one. Larry...

    Default Re-mounted volumes fail to appear on network

    I frequently unmount my G4's second hard drive, only to re-mount it
    hours/days later on. After that, my networked iMac can't see the
    volume. I have to restart personal file sharing on the G4 for the
    volume to appear again on the iMac list of available shares.

    Thanks for any suggestions on trouble-shooting this one.

    Entity ldgage spoke thus:
     
    You might check the "Volumes" folder, which is invisible.

    Paste this in Terminal:

    open /Volumes

    Sometimes disconnected aliases get stuck in there and prevent a remount. In
    fact, just opening and closing the folder forces it to refresh, which it
    fails to do otherwise.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Gnarlie. It didn't work, however I think
    you're on the right track. When the volume is unmounted and later the
    Volumes folder is opened, the old alias is still there, although it
    disappears a few seconds after opening. Re-mounting the volume causes
    the alias to reappear in the Volumes folder, but still it is not
    available as a share on the network.

    Is there a terminal command to request a volume broadcast its
    availability to the network?

    Thanks,
