CD - Create & mount ISO image

  • AIX

    # dd if=/dev/cd0 of=filename.iso

    Rock Ridge (ISO9660) format, where /tmp/cool.iso, is the name of the iso image file and /var/tmp/software is the contents of the iso image.

    # /usr/sbin/mkcd -I /tmp/cool.iso -r /var/tmp/software -S

    Mount an ISO image
    Create a filesystem slightly larger than the iso image

    # crfs -v jfs -g rootvg -a size=5000M -m /mycdrom -Ano -pro -tno

    Find the device name

    # lsfs | grep iso

    dd the contents of your iso into the file system

    # dd if=cool.iso of=/dev/rlv01

    Change attribute of the filesystem

    # chfs -a vfs=cdrfs /mycdrom
    # mount /mycdrom

    AIX 6.1

    # loopmount -i /var/tmp/cool.iso -o "-V cdrfs -o ro" -m /mnt


    # dd if=/dev/rdsk/<cd device> of=/tmp/cool.iso bs=2k

    Where iso_directory is where the iso will be placed.

    # make_media_install -r B.11.31 -m iso_directory

    Mount an iso image

    # nohup pfs_mountd &
    # nohup pfsd &
    # pfs_mount -o xlat=/path_to_iso /mycdrom

    Stop the volume management daemon

    # /etc/init.d/volmgt stop


    # svcadm disable volfs

    Inset the CD

    # dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t6d0s2 of=/var/tmp/cool.iso bs=1024k

    Mount an iso image
    Make a mount point

    # mkdir /mycdrom
    # mount -F hsfs -o ro 'lofiadm -a /var/tmp/cool.iso' /mycdrom

    Enable volume manager

    # /etc/init.d/volmgt start


    # svcadm enable volfs
