Re: mounting CDROM in HP-UX

In my HP-UX i found that a cdrom (/dev/dsk/c0t1d0) is connected.

How to find that the cdrom is connected in which mount point?

Hi Senthil Kumar,

step1:- "You need create directory under "/"

#mkdir /cdrom

step2 :- "Mount cdrom"

mount -F cdfs /dev/dsk/c0t1d0 /cdrom -->

Hope this helps,

Thanks,
Johnson

Re: mounting CDROM in HP-UX

if the CDROM is already mounted it should display when you do a

#mount
or cat /etc/mnttab

first make a directory

mkdir cdrom

by using ioscan -funC disk

once u found that one

mount /dev/dsk/c1t1d0 /cdrom

then go to cdrom( cd cdrom)

then use swinstall -s cdrom for install
