How to mount ISO image file on 11.31 Release 45 (Sept 2009)

I just updated my rx2600 system to 11.31 Releasee 5 (Sept 2009) DCOE. I have 2 ISO files that I have used successfully before by dd'ing to a raw lvol, mounting and then swinstall'ing from this mount point. I tried to test mounting the ISO images directly, but I get an error that the ISO file "is an invalid operand". The 4 ISO patches (PHCO_39672, PHCO_39673, PHCO_39674, PHCO_39675) are already included in the Sept 2009 release and installed on this system.

Any suggestions?

/var/adm/sw# cd /var/spool/sw
/var/spool/sw# ll *.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 74250240 Mar 24 2009 GlancePlus_11.31_B3693-13016.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 226097152 Mar 24 2009 ovpa_C.04.70_B7490-13297.iso

/var/spool/sw# mount -F cdfs /var/spool/sw/ovpa_C.04.70_B7490-13297.iso /cdrom
mount: /var/spool/sw/ovpa_C.04.70_B7490-13297.iso is an invalid operand

/var/spool/sw# mount -F cdfs -orr /var/spool/sw/ovpa_C.04.70_B7490-13297.iso /cdrom

Please try this... works on HP UX 11.32:

nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd&
nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd&

/usr/sbin/pfs_mount -t iso9660 -x unix iso_image_file mount_dir

Forget pfs_mount.

With your hp-ux version you can mount ISO files directly.

The patches are prereq's, but you need to install the product!

Hope this helps!

Torsten,

Thanks. I missed the extra details in the 11iv3 Sept 2009 Release Notes about loading the fspd DLM into the kernel. Works as advertised now.

After swinstall of ISOIMAGE-ENH, you need to load the DLKM:

kcmodule fspd=loaded
