Mounting DVD on Itanium Server

Hi,

I am totally new to HP-UX Itanium servers(and HP-UX OS). I have a new server:
# model
ia64 hp server rx2660

OS installation was fine on it. After OS installation, I tried to mount a DVD. After a lot of Googling, I am still stuck. I get the following error:
# ioscan -fnC disk
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
===============================================================================
disk 3 0/0/2/1.0.16 UsbScsiAdaptor CLAIMED DEVICE USB SCSI Stack Adaptor
/dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001
/dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/rdsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001

# mount /dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001 /aashish
/dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001: unrecognized file system


Please help.

Re: Mounting DVD on Itanium Server

Have you tried using the "rdsk" device?
Building a dumber user

Re: Mounting DVD on Itanium Server

This is the error i get with 'rdsk' device:
# mount /dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/rdsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001 /aashish
mount: /dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/rdsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001 is an invalid operand

try it as follows

mount -F cdfs -o ro,rr,noauto /dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001 /aashish


Good luck!!!!

Re: Mounting DVD on Itanium Server

# unmount /aashish



But you are using the old USB drivers.

You should uninstall them and install the current USB driver (from media or software.hp.com).


By doing this you get the good old /dev/dsk/cxtydz devices back.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Mounting DVD on Itanium Server

The mount command provided by Jupinder Bedi worked. Aditional info provided by Torsten was very useful.
