On most IBM AIX systems, the disk mounts automatically when you insert it into the disk drive. If the disk does not mount automatically, then follow these steps to mount it.
- Switch the user to
$ sudo - root
- If necessary, unmount the currently mounted disc, then remove it from the drive:
# umount /dvdIn this example,
/dvdis the mount point directory for the disc drive.
- Insert the appropriate disc into the disc drive, then mount it:
# /usr/sbin/mount -rv cdrfs /dev/cd0 /dvdIn this example,
/dev/cd0is the device name of the disc drive and
/dvdis the mount point directory.
