MOUNTING CD'S ON HPUX


If you want to mount an
ISO 9660 CDROM on HP-UX
or a ISO 9660 CDROM with
RockRidge Interchange Format
you have to start pfs_mountd
and pfsd.

# /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
[3] 1969
# /usr/sbin/pfsd &
[4] 1970

Edit or create the file
/etc/pfs_fstab

/dev/dsk/c0t4d0 /ISO_CDROM pfs-iso9660 xlat=unix 0 0
/dev/dsk/c0t4d0 /ISO_RR_CDROM pfs-rrip xlat=unix 0 0

Create the dirs, if they
don't exist

# ls -dl /ISO*
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4 Apr 2 20:44 ISO_CDROM
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4 Apr 2 20:44 ISO_RR_CDROM

Now it is easy to mount
ISO CDROMs

# pfs_mount /ISO_CDROM
# ls -l /ISO_CDROM
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4488 May 6 1988 cdsample
# pfs_umount /ISO_CDROM

Or with long filenames

# pfs_mount /ISO_RR_CDROM
# ls -l /ISO_RR_CDROM
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 4488 Nov 5 19:00 Copyright
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 1469 Oct 13 19:01 pictures_from_susi
