  • On Solaris
  • On Linux

For version 11.11:

  • Start the PFS mount daemon and the PFS daemon:

    Shell> nohup pfs_mountd &
    Shell> nohup pfsd &

  • Then create the directory to mount to and run the pfs_mount command:

    Shell> mkdir/CDROM
    Shell> pfs_mount-O xlat = UNIX/path/to/isofile/CDROM

Version 11.31:

  • Create a new logical volume say 'iso 'of size slightly
    Greater than the size of your ISO image in MB. You can do this from
    Admin Tool-Sam, or by using the following command.

    Shell> lvcreate-l size_of_your_iso-n iso/dev/vg00

  • Write your ISO to the new volume. Needless to say, you must have the required free space.

    Shell> dd If = path/to/ISO of =/dev/vg00/riso bs = 64

  • Now mount it on the directory of your choice, say/CDROM:

    Shell> Mount/dev/vg00/ISO/CDROM

On Solaris
  • Make the ISO image accessible through the block device. (See the lofiadm man page for more details)

    Shell> lofiadm-A/path/to/ISO/your_isao.iso

  • Then mount it wherever you want to, say on/CDROM

    Shell> Mount-F hsfs-O ro/dev/lofi/1/CDROM

On Linux
  • Use the following command to mount on the directory of your choice, say/mnt/myisodir

    Mount-o loop myiso. ISO/mnt/myisodir
