Linux and HP Cdrom problem

Linux and HP Cdrom problem

Hi, linuxuser

When I try to export the HPUX application CD in linux and export via NFS to machine locate in a room far far away. In linux the cd is viewable. In HP the exported dir is mountable but there is nothing visible.

Thank's at all

Re: Linux and HP Cdrom problem

Did you mount the CD before you exported/mounted the directory?

Re: Linux and HP Cdrom problem

Most flavors of Linux lock down access to disk devices
like cdroms. If the user id you are exporting as
doesn't have the appropriate access. root is usually
the owner, and the group is usually a special group
like floppy, audio, tape, or disk.

Try opening up access to the cdrom device with
a command like chmod 666 /dev/cdrom.

Hi,
Yes, I did mount before exports
