7.28 (SPARC Only) Hot-added CD-ROM Device is Detected As Hard Disk

If you hot add a virtual CD-ROM device to a virtual machine running on Oracle VM Server for SPARC, the CD-ROM device is not detected as a removable device and is not shown when you run the rmformat or format commands. Instead, the device is listed as a virtual disk and is mapped this way as a device alias. This can be verified using the OpenBoot PROM to run the show-disks and devalias commands.

Workaround: There is no workaround to this issue. Remain aware that when hot-adding a virtual CD-ROM device, this is detected as a virtual disk instead and is mapped in Solaris as a /dev/dsk/c1dXsX entry.
