Thanks to all that responded. Special thanks to -

I'm still not sure why volmgt flipped out, but here was the quick and dirty
hack to get around volmgt.

disable vold (sh /etc/init.d/volmgt stop)
and then mount the cdrom manually (mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c1t6d0s0


Has anyone experienced any issues/troubles with the cdrom device after the
solaris 9 install? We have two machines (e220r and blade 100) that have the
same issues after upgrading/installing solaris 9. After the install and
first reboot automount doesn't see the cdrom device and it seems that the
cdrom isn't recognized anymore by the operating system. I recall that there
was an alias in solaris 8 /vol/dev/aliases/cdrom (not sure) that would point
to the cdrom. Is this not the case for solaris 9?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,
