Thank you all esp. Ryan and Stuart

Remember I don't have volmgt installed or I could have just typed
(assuming it wasn't running):
/etc/init.d/volmgt start

Oops still use to working with cdrom perhaps touch dvdrom would be a
better choice.

My exact steps:

#touch cdrom
# iostat -En
c0t0d0           Soft Errors: 4 Hard Errors: 0 Transport Errors: 0
Vendor: TEAC     Product: DV-28E-N         Revision: P.6A Serial No:
Size: 3.03GB <3025141760 bytes>
Media Error: 0 Device Not Ready: 0 No Device: 0 Recoverable: 0
Illegal Request: 4 Predictive Failure Analysis: 0

# mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0 /cdrom
# cd /cdrom
# ls
Copyright                    boot

I forgot about looking in path_to_inst file, will do next time.


From: Ryan
Try 'iostat -En'.

From: Stuart
# grep -i cdrom|dvd /etc/path_to_inst

Dear Managers,

I searched hi and low for this and to be honest I couldn't find much
about device paths period.

How can I determine what my dvd-rom device path is?
I need to mount it and I don't have volume manager installed on the

Why the heck doesn't sun make this kind of stuff easily available???

This is what I used for my Supermicro x86 system

mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c1t0d0p0 /cdrom I know that c1t0d0p0 is
just a link to the /devices/* .
