Re: How to read IOS image files?

Hi,wangmx

It seems like a ISO image mount problem,

Have a look at the follow

Mounting
--------

If the ISO 9660 CD does not require the Rock Ridge extensions, you can
use either the mount(1M) or pfs_mount(1M) command to mount IS0 9660 CDs.

For example, to use mount(1M) to mount an ISO 9660 CD located at
/dev/cdrom onto the file system /cdrom, enter:

# mount -F cdfs -o cdcase /dev/cdrom /cdrom

The "-F cdfs" option indicates this is the CDFS file system type.
The "-o cdcase" option suppresses the display of version numbers
and the semicolon and converts file names to lower case.

For example, to use pfs_mount(1M) to mount an ISO 9660 CD located at
/dev/cdrom onto the file system /cdrom, enter:

# pfs_mount -t iso9660 -x unix /dev/cdrom /cdrom

The "-t iso9660" option causes pfs_mount to attempt to mount
the CD-ROM image using the iso9660 specifications.
The "-x unix" option suppresses the display of version numbers
and the semicolon and converts file names to lower case.

If the ISO 9660 CD-ROM requires the Rock Ridge extensions to be enabled,
you must use pfs_mount with the "-t rrip" option.

For example:

# pfs_mount -t rrip /dev/cdrom /cdrom

The "-t rrip" option causes pfs_mount to attempt to mount the CD-ROM
image using the Rock Ridge Interchange specifications. If the CD image
is not rrip-compatible, the mount fails.

For a detailed description of usage and options, refer to the mount(1M) and
pfs_mount(1M) manpages. For more information about PFS (the Portable
File System) refer to the pfs(4) manpage.

Easy going at all.

Re: How to read IOS image files?

Is the ISO image on cdrom/dvd??
What does following say??
fstyp -v /dev/dsk/cxtxdx

HP-IX can not directly mount it. You will have to use, pfs to mount it. Check following.

Re: How to read IOS image files?

You need to burm ISO image to CD, then you can install from CD. You use cdrecord which is part Internet Express package, http://h20293.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPUXIEXP1123
