cdrom Files Appear with ;1 suffix

I am trying to install Oracle on an
HP-UX jettst3 B.11.00 U 9000/800 server.
I have mounted the installation cdrom using the
'mount -o cdrom,ro /dev/dsk/cxtxdx /mount/dir'
format.

I can access the files and directories on the cdrom but all of the files have their names cutoff and are suffixed by a ';1' as in,
runinstaller.sh is appearing as runinsta.;1

Don't know if files were placed on cdrom like this or if it has to do with the way it was mounted.

Has anyone seen this before? Need help to correct this , if possible.

Re: cdrom Files Appear with ;1 suffix

Hopefully your 11.0 server has been well patched.

Try this:

mount -o rr,ro /dev/dsk/cxtxdx /mount/dir

To mount using the Rock Ridge extensions. If mount complains that 'rr' is not a valid option then you will have to resort to using pfs_mount.

There should be instructions in the Oracle docs on using pfs_mount.

You can also search the forums for information on using pfs_mount.

Re: cdrom Files Appear with ;1 suffix

Hi Sam:

Your 11.0 system needs to have three patches installed (which will require a reboot but which enables mounting RockRidge format CDs):

PHKL_28060
PHKL_26450
PHCO_26449

Once you have applied these you can do:

# mount -F cdfs -e -o ro,rr /dev/rdsk/cXtYdZ /cdrom

Thanks all but when trying yo unmount am getting the message:

umount /dev/dsk/c4t2d0
umount: cannot find /dev/dsk/c4t2d0 in /etc/mnttab
.

I checked and c4t2d0 is not in /etc/mnttab. I do not find anything in the forums about this.

How to mount an Oracle CDROM.

Should be interesting to see if it works in 11.00

Re: cdrom Files Appear with ;1 suffix

Hi (again):

> umount /dev/dsk/c4t2d0
> umount: cannot find /dev/dsk/c4t2d0 in /etc/mnttab

You 'umount' the directory not the device. For example:

# cd /
# umount /cdrom

I offer the initial 'cd /' to suggest to you that you will never unmount (either) if you have changed into the directory that you are trying to unmount -- a somewhat common error.

Regards!

Hi Sam,

Please use the following 'mount -F cdfs -o cdcase /dev/dsk/cxtxdx /mount/dir'

The issue should be resolved

Has anyone tried a Forum search for keywords
like, say:
mount cd-rom
?
