How to mount/umount CDROM on Solaris

You can mount cdrom by vold or manually

By vold daemon:

1. Check if the vold daemon is runing

# pgrep vold

2. If it is not runing, restart it

# pkill vold && /usr/sbin/vold &

3. Check the mount status of CDROM

# df-k

Manually:
1. Find the cdrom device on Solaris
$ ls -al /dev/sr* | awk '{print "/" $11}'
/dsk/c1t0d0s
2. Mount the CDROM
$ mount -F hsfs -r /dev/sr0 /cdrom
or
$ mount -F hsfs -o -ro /dev/c1t0d0s2
