QUESTION: how do you mount a cdrom in solaris

Bhavesh Shah  said:

1) just make sure automountd daemon is running - if not start it from
/etc/init.d - /etc/init.d/autofs start
then mount insert the cdrom and it will be automatically mounted.
2) mount -F hsfs /dev/dsk/cxtxdxs2 /mnt

Debbie said:

If you have vold running (via /etc/init.d/volmgt) it will
mount automatically.  To have it mount immediately, you
can run "volcheck" (or "volcheck -v" for more information).

Then to eject it, type "eject cdrom" at the prompt (the
button on the device won't work).  Also, if it's a
CDW or CDRW, you need to turn off vold before trying
to write (or even run "cdrecord --scanbus").

again ,,,thank you
