Question Mounting an ISO As a file system in AIX

I want to mount an ISO image as a file system in AIX, have been unable to find a utility to do so after scouring the net.

I am not familiar with AIX, but on some systems, you can pass the "-o loop" option to the mount command in order to mount a file as a device to a folder (whew!). For example, I have used:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 ./my.iso ./mnt
, and it works just fine.... Check your man page for mount to look for your exact options, etc...

Hope this helps.
