The Solaris 10 5/09 DVD does not mount by default during runtime. No error message is displayed.

Workaround: Perform the following steps:

  2. Disable vold:

    • On Solaris 10 Systems:

      # svcadm disable -t volfs
    • On Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 systems:

      /etc/init.d/volmgt stop
  3. Mount the media manually by using the # mount -F hsfs path to block device path to mount point command. For example:
