thanks for helping out. I recently installed solaris 10 zfs in netra240 server. This netra240 has a DVD Rom. However, in the root directory, there is no cdrom. It is missing. I will glad if someone can help me resolve this issue.
Thank you again.
The Solaris OS has a Volume Management Utility managed by SMF Service (svc:/system/filesystem/volfs:default). It will automatically mount the cdrom under /cdrom when you insert one in the drive. It it doesn't mount it, you have to mount it manually. The procedure is:
1. Disable the volfs service. (svcadm disable -v volfs).
2. mount the cdrom. (mount -F hsfs /dev/dsk/<cdrom> /cdrom
3. Access the cdrom content.
4. Eject the cdrom (cd /;eject cdrom).
5. Enable volfs service (svcadm enable -v volfs).
