Volume Manager Might Fail To Mount CDROM (4355643)

A CDROM with an unusual data layout might fail to mount automatically. The File Manager Window might not display the CDROM's contents after it is inserted into the drive.

Workaround: Mount the CDROM manually:

  1. Become root.

  2. Stop the volume manager:

    /etc/init.d/volmgt stop

  3. Mount the CDROM:

    mount -F hsfs -r device_pathname /mnt

    Where device_pathname is the pathname to where in the system the CDROM drive is connected to. For example, /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0.

    Note -

    CDROM drives are typically connected to c0t6d0s0 or to c0t2d0s0 at the factory, but you must use the correct pathname for this command to work.

  4. Restart the volume manager:

    /etc/init.d/volmgt  start
