Remote mount of a cdrom

I am trying to remote mount a cdrom (Sun Ultra 10 running release 7) on another system.

I followed the following procedure offered by a friend:

To allow a drive to be mounted, edit /etc/dfs/dfstab file to include the following line:

share -F nfs -o ro /usr/man

On computer with drive to be shared, type:

share -F nfs /cdrom/cdrom0

On Computer with drive to be mounted, type

mount "remote hostname":/cdrom/cdrom0 /mnt

I get this error message after the mount command - RPC:: Program Not Registered.

What am I missing?

issue the command:

shareall -F nfs
on the computer with shared cdrom and
make sure nfs daemon is running on the
on this computer

issued ps -ef | grep nfs
this should list the nfs daemon

if nfs deamon is not running you could
start it up by cd /etc/init.d
and issued ./nfs.server start

on the computer with drive to be mounted issue

mount -v "remote hostname":/cdrom/cdrom0 /mnt

There are a few things you can look at.

First, it looks like you don't have the rpcd daemon running. That needs to be running.

Also, I would do this.

Telnet to the box exporting the CD from your other box. Then run who -R to show all remote connections. Make sure that you actual hostname is the name used in this output. I had a problem where my hostname is "myhost" but my exported name is "myhosta"!!

Hope this helps

My brain is your brain...

mount -v

I tried your solution:

mount -v "remote hostname":/cdrom/cdrom0 /mnt

on Solaris 8 and get the error "can't use -v option with arguments.

I try:
mount "remote hostname":/cdrom/cdrom0 /mnt

and it works OK.

you can't start the /etc/init.d/nfs.server daemon unless you have:

share -F nfs /cdrom/cdrom0 in /etc/init.d/dfstab
