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.

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.

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
