ISO Image Installation

I try to install the software with iso image format (*.iso) on HP-UX 11.23.
By searching on hp website i found it is possible with following step:

nohup pfs_mountd &
nohup pfsd &
pfs_mount -o xlat=UNIX pathToIso mountPoint

I know that pathToIso is full path of ISO file, but I do not understand the mountPoint parameter.

What is the mountPoint parameter? How I should define it?

Thank in andvanced.

Re: ISO Image Installation

It's the directory on which you mount it.
e.g. mkdir -p test and then
pfs_mount -o xlat=UNIX pathToIso /test

You can also try following.

mount -F iso9660 /dev/dsk/cxtxdx /test

Re: ISO Image Installation

What kind of a software is it?
For hp ux, it has to be a depot. Else, the software should have it's own installer utility-like configure, install script etc.

hp unix understands only the SDUX.

Re: ISO Image Installation

It is HP TeMIP Fault Statistics software.
it has multiple iso image (4), I think I should find the installation guide for this.
Anyway i have been successfull to mount the image.
In this case should I mount the all iso image in one mountPoint (e.g /test) or multiple mountPoint ?

To see all images at once, you need N mount points.
