Trying to eject cdrom

The green cdrom light is blinking on our Sun Solaris server. I tried the eject command to eject cdrom:
Code:
eject cdrom
cdrom: No such file or directory
bash-2.05# eject
No default media available
bash-2.05# eject cdrom0
cdrom0: No such file or directory
 
The message log file shows:

It looks like the cdrom is not mounted. You may want to verify that first.
Could the blinking be a self-detected hardware problem?

Try to restart vold daemon. Is it solaris-9/10 ?

Try to use absolute PATH to the CDROM

Code:
eject /dev/cxtxdxsx

and to get appropriate device you can use

cdrw command
# 5  
Old 10-24-2011
you could perform the following steps....not sure of it though

#/etc/init.d/volmgt stop
#eject
#/etc/init.d/volmgt start

---------- Post updated at 09:26 AM ---------- Previous update was at 09:25 AM ----------

After you get this error

bash-2.05# eject
No default media available

try removing the media manually.

Or you could issue the following command:

eject -n

and look for the cd-rom device in the output of that command

eject -n simply replays a canned list of "nicknames" or synonyms that eject understands.
How does that identify the device in question?
