On rare occasions, the 'R' flag, which represents the releaser process is actively running on a file system, can become stuck. This usually occurs if the sam-releaser process was interrupted or exited prematurely. It can be seen in the samu 'f' or 'm' display:
# samcmd f
File systems samcmd 4.6.25 13:15:25 Jan 4 2008 samcmd on hostname
ty eq state device_name status high low mountpoint server ms 60 on samfs1 m--R-2----d 80% 70% /samfs1
# samcmd m
Mass storage status samcmd 4.6.25 13:31:30 Jan 4 2008 samcmd on hostname
ty eq status use state ord capacity free ra part high low ms 60 m--R-2----d 89% on 9.146G 1002.875M 1M 16 80% 70%
And a pgrep shows sam-releaser process isn't running
