Mounting a DVD in Virtual machine.

Hi All,

I am running hp-vm in 11iv2 on rx6600 server.
In m environment I have 4 vm's configured. I am not able to access the Shared dvd ( mounting and umounting) I tried the following.

1. Issued "ej" command in all the vm guest level.
2. When I tried ejecting physically in the host level I am not able to do that.

Please help me to find where it is mounted.

See dmesg

if its smthing urgent you can do a nfs mount from host.

for better analysis we need some kind of error message, or more information.

Re: Mounting a DVD in Virtual machine.

Please send you guest configuration so we can see if the dvd drive is correctly assigned.

# hpvmstatus -P

Hope this helps!
