/dev/rdsk/c0t6d0s2: No such file or directory


When attempting to eject a CD-ROM on a Ultra 450 system, the eject cdrom command fails, displaying the error message.

This happens when the CD-ROM is on controller 1, not 0. When using the eject(1) command, the CD-ROM "nickname" equates to /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0s2. On an Ultra 450, the CD-ROM equates to /dev/rdsk/c1t6d0s2. Therefore, using cdrom does not work.


Use the following command instead:

# eject cdrom0
If volume manager /usr/sbin/vold is not running, you can use the following:

# eject /dev/rdsk/c1t6d0s2

Note -

Make sure that the front panel of the system is unobstructed so the CD-ROM tray is not blocked. Otherwise, the eject(1) command appears to hang since the tray is trying to open, but is physically blocked.
