Re: not understand format of CD

Hi

Edit /etc/pfs_fstab to read:
/dev/dsk/c3t2d0 /cdrom pfs-rrip xlat=unix 10
where c3t2d0 is your cdrom device.

Then start the pfs daemons:

#nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
#nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd &

And mount the CD
#pfs_mount /cdrom

Hi,

You will need to have nfs installed to use pfs_mount.

HP promised a patch by the end of May 2002, that would integrate the RRIP into the OS/mount, so the cdrom formats would be transparant. Check begin June on the SUM if QPK is available and order that immediately :)

Re: not understand format of CD

I've never had luck with the pfs_mount, I use:

mount -F cdfs -r -o cdcase /dev/dsk/c0t1d0 /cdrom

where c0t1d0 is your cdrom drive.

Re: not understand format of CD

Not having luck has nothing to do with RR format Cd's, nor pfs_mount.
pfs_mount requires two daemons to be running, and in the right order.

I have attached a boot script I install on my HP's, which takes care of the dependancies. It relies on a file called pfs in /etc/rc.config.d which looks like...(sorry, can only attach one file).
#####
# pfs configuration: set to a non-zero value to
# initiate pfsd and pfs_mountd at run_level 2
#
# Installed at /etc/rc.config.d/pfs
#
RUN_PFS_SERVER=1
# Set the number of PFS daemons to run
PFS_DAEMONS=4

If these daemons are not started in proper order, or not at all then pfs_mount will fail. Make sure that you pfs_umount ASAP, as a regular umount will attempt to umount, but of course hang. This in turn causes the device to lock until reboot.

Shannon

Re: not understand format of CD

Would that also be solved in the RRIP patches for 11i? Cannot check, only have 11.00.
