CDROM Doesn't Auto Mount - Solaris 9

On Sun Fire V240, cdrom doesn't automount. I can manually mount the cdrom, however it pretty annoying. I have checked the vold demon and its seems to be running. Here is the output from


[root@ussjmpsvr] pg inetd.conf
daytime stream tcp6 nowait root internal
daytime dgram udp6 wait root internal
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd in.tftpd -s /tftpboot
# METAD - SLVM metadb Daemon
100229/1-2 tli rpc/tcp wait root /usr/sbin/rpc.metad rpc.metad
100230/1 tli rpc/tcp wait root /usr/sbin/rpc.metamhd rpc.metamhd
# METAMEDD - SLVM Mediator Daemon
100242/1 tli rpc/tcp wait root /usr/sbin/rpc.metamedd rpc.metamedd
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.telnetd

Is there something missing from the above file which is preventing the cdrom to automount when inserted.

Or can someone tell ne what will be the best way to troubleshoot this issue.

Any input on this issue will be appreciated.

Stop and restart vold. Check /var/adm/messages for errors. Check /etc/vold.conf.

I think you may need the following line in /etc/inetd.conf:

100155/1 tli rpc/ticotsord wait root /usr/lib/smedia/rpc.smserverd rpc.smserverd

Send a HUP to inetd.conf after editing and stop and restart vold.
