Mounting the SFHA Solutions product disc

You must have superuser (root) privileges to load the product.

To mount the product disc on AIX

  1. Log in as superuser on a system where you want to install the product. The systems must be in the same subnet.

    For High Availability products:

    The system from which you install the product need not be part of the cluster.

  2. Determine the device access name of the disc drive. For example, enter:

    # lsdev -C -c dvdrom

    The output resembles:

    dvd0 Available 1G-19-00 IDE DVD-ROM Drive

    In this example, dvd0 is the disc's device access name.

  3. Make sure the /dvdrom file system is created:

    # cat /etc/filesystems

    If the /dvdrom file system exists, the output contains a listing that resembles:

    .
    .
    /dvdrom:
    dev = /dev/dvd0
    vfs = dvdrfs
    mount = false
    options = ro
    account = false
    .
    .
  4. If the /dvdrom file system does not exist, create it:

    # crfs -v dvdrfs -p ro -d dvd0 -m /dvdrom
  5. Insert the product disc with the product software into a drive that is connected to the system.

  6. Mount the disc:

    # mount /dvdrom
    # cd /dvdrom

To mount the product disc on HP-UX

  1. Log in as superuser on a system where you want to install the product. The systems must be in the same subnet.

    For High Availability products:

    The system from which you install the product need not be part of the cluster.

  2. Insert the product disc in the appropriate drive on your local system.

  3. Determine the block device file for the DVD drive:

    # ioscan -fnC disk
    			

    Make a note of the device file as it applies to your system.

  4. Create a directory in which to mount the software disc and mount the disc using the appropriate drive name. For example:

    # mkdir -p /dvdrom
    # mount /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0 /dvdrom
  5. Verify that the disc is mounted:

    # mount
    			

To mount the product disc on Linux

  1. Log in as superuser on a system where you want to install the product. The systems must be in the same subnet.

    For High Availability products:

    The system from which you install the product need not be part of the cluster.

  2. Insert the product disc with the product software into a drive that is connected to the system.

    The disc is automatically mounted.

  3. If the disc does not automatically mount, then enter:

    # mount -o ro /dev/dvdrom /mnt/dvdrom
    			
  4. Navigate to the location of the RPMs.

    # cd /mnt/dvdrom/dist_arch/rpms

    Where dist is rhel5, rhel6, sles10, or sles11, and arch is x86_64 for RHEL and SLES.

To mount the product disc on Solaris

  1. Log in as superuser on a system where you want to install the product. The systems must be in the same subnet.

    For High Availability products:

    The system from which you install the product need not be part of the cluster.

  2. Insert the product disc into a DVD drive that is connected to your system.

  3. If Solaris volume management software is running on your system, the software disc automatically mounts as /dvdrom/dvdrom0.

  4. If Solaris volume management software is not available to mount the DVD, you must mount it manually. After you insert the software disc, enter:

    # mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s2 /dvdrom

    Where c0t6d0s2 is a sample address for the disc drive.
