pfs_mount command


If you are having problems with ANY HPUX specific questions. There is a very good HP website

That is their forum for HPUX questions. Although Perderabo has done a good job in diagnosing your problem.

There is another command that you should try "pfs_mount". Do a man on it.

I have had to use this with some Vendor CDs namely EMC cdroms. For some reason, some CDs are created with alternate formats that pfs_mount can read.

Try this and get back to me.

Here is some of the man page.

root> man pfs_mount
Block Cache
This cache holds raw 8k blocks of recently accessed data.

To mount a CD-ROM disk:

pfs_mount /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0 /cd-rom

To mount a remote file system:

pfs_mount serv:/cd-rom /cd-rom

To fake an entry for iso9660 on /cd-rom:

pfs_mount -f -t iso9660 /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0 /cd-rom

To hard mount a remote file system:

pfs_mount -o hard serv:/cd-rom /cd-rom

This the output and the command that i used

# pfs_mount /dev/dsk/c1t2d0 /SD_ROM
pfs_mount: giving up on /SD_ROM

tryed it a couple of diffrent ways.. but still no luck, i think its time to purchase a new cd this one has seen better days.... thanks for all of your help

Isn't the mount point "SD_CDROM", not "SD_ROM"?
It looks to my untrained eye to be complaining about the mount point, not the filesystem.
