You can export a compact disc (CD) or digital versatile disc (DVD) the same way you export any regular disk. To export a CD or DVD to a guest domain, export slice 2 of the CD or DVD device as a full disk; that is, without the slice option.
If you have an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) image of a CD or DVD stored in file or on a volume and export that file or volume as a full disk, then it appears as a CD or DVD in the guest domain.
When you export a CD, DVD, or an ISO image, it automatically appears as a read-only device in the guest domain. However, you cannot perform any CD control operations from the guest domain; that is, you cannot start, stop, or eject the CD from the guest domain. If the exported CD, DVD, or ISO image is bootable, the guest domain can be booted on the corresponding virtual disk.
For example, if you export a Oracle Solaris OS installation DVD, you can boot the guest domain on the virtual disk that corresponds to that DVD and install the guest domain from that DVD. To do so, when the guest domain reaches the ok prompt, use the following command.
ok boot /virtual-devices@100/channel-devices@200/disk@n:f
Where n is the index of the virtual disk representing the exported DVD.
