Solaris Transition Guide

Using a Remote CD-ROM Drive (Solaris 7 Software)

If install4x is to use a CD-ROM drive on a remote system running the Solaris 7 operating environment, Volume Management automatically mounts the CD directory on /cdrom/volume1/s0. Then type the following command after you install the CD into the drive.

# share -F nfs -o ro /cdrom/volume1/s0 

If you are not sharing other NFS systems at boot time, you need to invoke the mountd(1M) and nfsd(1M) daemons.

Type the following commands on the local system.

# mkdir /cdrom

# mount -F nfs -o ro cd-host:/cdrom/volume1/s0 /cdrom
