Not able to mount CD/DVD on HP-UX 11.11

Hi,

I have attached internal DVD Drive to my HP-UX machine. Previously there was CD Drive. I can not mount DVD on that. While mounting it gives below error.

# mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /dvdrom
mount: /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 on /dvdrom : Device busy.

I can mount HP-UX 11.11 installation CD's on the same machine and can view the CD contents.

# ioscan -funC disk
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description

Also output of lsof shows nothing.
#lsof | grep "/dev/dsk/c0t0d0"

Appreciate your immediate reply on this.

Make sure you are not sitting under /dvdrom directory

#cd /
Also check the directory is already not mounted.

Else try creating a new directory /media
and try mounting on that directory.

Hello,

you have misspelled /dvdrom as /dvrom, hence the error messages in your last post.
