Auto mount Oracle CD

Does anyone have any ideas on how to automatically mount an Oracle CD on an HP9000? I've looked into AutoFS but can't figure out how to get it to work with pfs_mount.

Thanks,

I don't think HP-UX has an equivalent to Sun's vold.

You will have to mount it manually , ie change CD's for 2 CD versions.

pfs_mountd &
pfsd &
pfs_mount /dev/rdsk/cxtydz /cdrom

Hi,
HP doesn't have amounting the pfs.
you have to do it using pfs_mount only

Hi Chad,

You'll have to create an /etc/pfstab file for the pfsmount - containing something along the line of

/dev/dsk/cxtydz /cdrom ro,suid 0 0

before you start the daemon & do the mount.

See this thread for further detail

Re: Auto mount Oracle CD

Let me rephrase that & correct a typo.

You may wish to create /etc/pfs_fstab as indicated because then you could just issue
pfs_mount -a to mount the CD.
