rx6600’s with internal DVD-ROM(AD142A) on HPUX 11iv3

We have 4 rx6600’s with internal DVD-ROM(AD142Aa) drives that cannot be seen by the OS HP-UX 11iv3. The OS is an image that was created using external DVD-RW drives and works fine for external drives but not internal drives.I know that the AD142A DVD is not supported on HPUX but nothing tells me that AD142A isn't supported. Am I missing a kernel module or a driver?

I won't be of much help but I happen to have one rx6600 running 11iv3 since a few weeks. I checked it and ioscan/cstm do not report any DVD installed as well for me. If I ioscan a 11iv2 identical server, it does show up as a TEAC DV-28E-N.

I checked the quickspecs and come to the same conclusion as you: AD143 (the DVD-RW) isn't supported with HP-UX but AD142 (DVD-ROM) should be.

If nobody replies, I think I'll have to open a call for this.

I can't try it here with a real DVD as the server is remote but my guess is that you can try something like this:

mount /dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001 /cdrom

Good lick

The USB (!) drive looks like this under 11.31:

disk 1 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



Hope this helps!

Re: rx6600’s with internal DVD-ROM(AD142A) on HPUX 11iv3

Thanks to all for your assistance. The problem was the Kernel module UsbHid was not set to static. So, I guess I was looking at it from a different view.
