BL860 mounting the CDROM

Wanted to find out how to mount a cdrom on HP-UX 11i v3 on a BL860.
I dont seem to see a device file for that.

Thank you

Re: BL860 mounting the CDROM

like murat had posted earlier, run ioscan -fnC disk to check if you have a cdrom available.

If there isn't, you may want to connect the USB cdrom which comes in every HP integriy blade enclosure.

Attached it and execute `ioscan -fnC disk` again.

If its listed, then execute `insf -e` to create the special file.

Then you can mount cdrom manually.
# mount /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 /cdrom

other choice would be vMedia or mount the cdrom remotely from other hpux server.

Re: BL860 mounting the CDROM

If there was no DVD drive present while you install the OS the USB mass storage driver is not included. In this case you need to include the driver into the kernel.
IIRC this is changed in the last (Sep 2007) release and the driver is always included.

Be aware, in 11.31 the device file looks very different, because it is USB and uses the device file system.

This *is* the device file!

Hope this helps!
