Sun Blade 100 cdrom problems...

FYI noob to here and sun blades...

I have a sun blade 100 and I can't get the cdrom to work. if i try using vold that doesn't seem to work either...maybe i'm not using it correctly.

Upon boot you can open/close the cdrom and it runs but after i'm logged in it won't open and i can't access it the data on it...

i looked in the vstab file and i think it appears to be mounted...

what else can i check or do to solve this problem.

thanks

can you boot from the cdrom? the cdrom should NOT be in vfstab file! cdroms are automaticly mounted by vold. if cdrom is in vfstab, comment out the line and restart you blade.

cdroms are automaticly mounted by vold. no way to store info vfstab.

once againg u restart the vold service.
#cd /etc/init.d
#sh volmgt stop
#sh volmgt start
#cd

Reinstalling Solaris 9 on Sun Blade 100

For the past ten years I have owned a blade 100, and I had Solaris 9 running on it. Due to the fact, 9 is woefully out of date, I wanted to try 10, but 10 needed more ram, so I beefed up the ram to the full 2 gig. I have two 15 gig ide drives in the box (stock drives).
