Volume management features have been improved in this release to fully support removable media. This improvement means that the following media are mounted and available for reading on insertion:
Iomega and Universal Serial Bus (USB) Zip drives and Jaz drives
With Common Desktop Environment (CDE) and Solaris command-line enhancements, you can accomplish the following:
Format, label, and set read or write software protection on removable media with the new rmformat command. This command replaces the fdformat command for formatting removable media.
Create and verify a PCFS file system on removable media with the mkfs_pcfs and fsck_pcfs commands.
Create an fdisk partition and a PCFS file system on removable media on a SPARC system to facilitate data transfers to x86 systems.
See the System Administration Guide: Basic Administration for information on managing removable media with the command-line interface. See the Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User’s Guide for information on managing removable media with CDE's File Manager.
