Mounting cdrom in 11i v3

Hi All,

Anyone know the steps for mounting a cdrom in 11i v3. Havging the weirdest time mounting a cdrom in 11i v3 new install.
When i try to mount it, I get unrecognized filesystem.

sudo ioscan -funC disk
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
=======================================================================
disk 26 0/0/2/0.0.0.0 sdisk CLAIMED DEVICE _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6650A /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0

sudo mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /cdrom
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0: unrecognized file system



$ sudo ioscan -kfnNC disk

/dev/disk/disk29_p3 /dev/rdisk/disk29_p3



$ sudo mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/disk/disk27 /cdrom
/dev/disk/disk27: unrecognized file system

OK, I'll ask the stupid question:

Is the CD in the drive?

Shalom G,

Personally I would take this messag seriously.

unrecognized file system

It is either bad media or an incorrect mount command.

If the media is good, you can use swlist -i to search for a local CD-ROM and it will handle the mount command for you on HP provided OS or application media.

Re: Mounting cdrom in 11i v3

What CD/DVD is in the drive? Is it a filesystem that HP-UX recognises?

fstyp -v /dev/disk/disk27

Re: Mounting cdrom in 11i v3

Hi:

You are attempting to mount a RockRidge format (-o rr). Is that what you intend to do? Is this an Oracle CD/DVD or is it HP-UX media?

By the way, I don't think 'pfs_mount' even exists in 11.31. That dysfunctional mechanism for mounting was obviated by patches eons ago in 11.0.

Regards!

Re: Mounting cdrom in 11i v3

Yes, the cdrom is in the drive.
The cd is a CommVault Galaxy Simpana 7.0 cd.

Ok. My mistake, sort of. :o)
It looks like I was using the wrong the cd in first, which was the Service Pack cd. I inserted the install cd, and was able to mount the install cd with no problem using:
sudo mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /cdrom

Atlhough the label on the Service Pack cd indicates it is for all Unix platforms, it would not mount as you see from the errors above.

Can you try without parameter -F & -o

sudo mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /cdrom

Ok ALL. Forgive me as my eyes have deceived me this morning,as I reread the Service Pack cd, and it says for all Unix Platforms EXCEPT, Linux, AIX,and HPUX. I missed the EXCEPT part on the cd.

All is good now. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks to everone for your quick responses and help.
