Rx6000 dvd hpux v3 no device file

I have a new preinstalled hpux v3, I need to install vpar sw using swinstall from the dvd, but I can't see the device file for the dvd, the dvd was installed from factory and has power but is not visible from ioscan or swinstall "no local cdrom"

Re: Rx6000 dvd hpux v3 no device file

I'm pretty sure it is there.

in ioscan -fn it will look very similar to this:

disk 1 0/0/2/1.0.16 UsbScsiAdaptor CLAIMED DEVICE OO Dev
ice Driver
/dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-
1008+294=A60020000001


because it is USB.

Consider to create a link like "/dev/mycdrom" to make it easier for you.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Rx6000 dvd hpux v3 no device file

Did you mean internal IDE DVD drive or external USB DVD drive conneted to a USB port?

For internal DVD drive, you would see the DVD drive with its device files using
# ioscan -fnC disk

If it is a USB DVD drive and as Torsten mentioned, it will be listed with using
# ioscan -fnC disk as

disk 1 0/0/2/1.0.16 UsbScsiAdaptor CLAIMED DEVICE OO Device Driver
/dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001
/dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/rdsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001

You can create new device files like /dev/dsk/dvdrom & /dev/rdsk/dvdrom using major and minor numbers ( # ll /dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001 ) of the above device files with mknod command.

Re: Rx6000 dvd hpux v3 no device file

It is a internal usb device, not ide on this server.

after making a link
ln -s /dev/deviceFileSystem/Usb/MassStorage/dsk/disk@hp-1008+294=A60020000001 /dev/cdrom

After this I could mount the dvd
mount -r /dev/cdrom /SD_CDrom

thanks:-)
