Re: can't open cdrom after ILO firmware upgrade

What HP-UX version?
Why are you even thinking using pfs_mountd and pfsd?

Hello,
the hp-ux version is 11.11

For the pfs_mountd it's because I want just want to make sure that's not because the drive is mounted or locked by the OS

>For the pfs_mountd

I was suggesting you remove that demon from the system as causing other problems. ;-)

I've had this happen for no apparent reason on pa-risc and itanium systems and it required a patch upgrade to sort it.

Consider this can be a pure mechanical problem. Carefully pull the drive and inspect it. Sometimes the top cover press too much on the drive, hence it cannot open.

Hope this helps!

A patch upgrade ? Do you know which patch it is ? A ILO firmware upgrade ? Or a 11iv1 upgrade ?


For the mechanical malfunction, the device light stay off when I push the button... So I doubt it's the problem. It look like it's mounted of some sort.

Have you tried to operate the drive outside OS OE?

Just to check you should shutdown the OS and try, just to ensure it is not a mounting issue.

Hope this helps!

Re: can't open cdrom after ILO firmware upgrade

first thanks for all your responses.

For the shutdown, that won't be easy, most of the server are on production.
