I did this in the past with a simple "dd" command like this:

# dd if=/dev/rdsk/..cd-device.. of=/file bs=2k

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: whats the syntax to create iso image from hp-ux bootable DVD

make_media_install -r B.11.31 -m iso_directory

Change -r for HPUX version. e.g. B.11.23 or B.11.31


This will create an iso file in the supplied directory that you can use as a virtual DVD or burn to real DVD

sorry.. posted too quickly.

and...you can then copy the installation DVDs to a depot for use from all servers.
e.g
boot from boot helper then pick depot installation.


The other options mentioned I am not sure how you are going to append the two DVDs into a single ISO image.
