mount of a cdrom

hello,
after mounting (mount /dev/dsk/c0t1d0 /cdrom) cdrom (used for an oracle-upgrade) Ifind the following strage output:
l /ora920_2
CDLABEL.ASC;1, CDLABEL.EBC;1, COPY_TM.HTM;1, COPY_TM.TXT;1, CRCFILE.DAT;1, LABEL.ASC;1, LABEL.EBC;1, META-INF,
UNIX, VERSION.ASC;1, VERSION.EBC;1

Is there a special mount option for windows/dos-cds?

Thank you in advance,
Stefan

Re: mount of a cdrom

Stefan,

It sounds like you need to look at pfs_mount. Check this thread:

Re: mount of a cdrom

/dev/dsk/c0t1d0 ???

Can you verify this server and O/S please? For most CDROM devices are more like c2t5d0.

HP-UX uses 'pfs_mount' but Oracle should have provided details about this. For example:

pfs_mount -o xlat=unix /dev/rdsk/c2t2d0 /cdrom

pfs_umount -c /cdrom

Re: mount of a cdrom

Try mounting with

mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/... /cdrom

Re: mount of a cdrom

You can also look into the RockRidge extension patches which eliminate the need to use the problematic pfs_mount command.

Quoting from Merijn (Procura) on his web page at http://www.cmve.net/~merijn/



My CD-ROM doesn't show what I expect

It can be an Oracle CD-ROM, or a CD created on Windows, or whereever they used Rock Ridge extensions. Long names are truncated or show upper case only. Oracle tells you to use pfs_mount.

Do not use pfs_mount!. Install the Rock-Ridge extension patches instead and never worry about these problems. For HP-UX 11.00 you will need forget all about PFS and install PHKL_26448 (now superceded by PHKL_28060), PHCO_26449, and PHKL_26450 to have HP-UX recognize those file systems automatically on mount! For HP-UX 11i you need PHCO_25841, PHKL_26269, and PHKL_25760.

No need thereafter to use -o cdfs to mount anymore, provided you enter the CD drive in /etc/fstab like this:

/dev/cd0 /cdrom cdfs ro,rr,noauto 0 0

Re: mount of a cdrom

I use these switches:

-F cdfs -r -o cdcase

-F is file system type, -o are options which apparently are specific for each file system type. cdcase will fix the upper-case issue I think. -r is for read-only and I'm not convinced that's required for a cdrom.

To be honest these switches were handed to me by a consultant with a CD he'd given me and I looked around for a list of file system types and their respective options but couldn't find anything.

You could start with 'man 1M mount', and 'man fstyp' though.

Re: mount of a cdrom

hi,

i prefer to use my script which allows me to both mount and unmount my Oracle cds.

It uses pfs_mount.

hope this helps!
