Attach CD / Solaris

I try to attach an external scsi cdrom-drive to my sun and it won't work. I tried  mount /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 /cdrom and the system answer is always /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 or /cdrom, no such file or directory. The /cdrom directory exists.

I tried to reboot the system, but after reboot the system don't see the CD-Drive.

Thanks for helping.

Is it a sun driver, and if so have you tried a reconfigure boot?

# touch /reconfigure
# init 6

or "boot -r" from the OK> prompt

also at the ok> prompt try "probe-scsi-all" to see if it finds the cd drive

Two more things:

-Be sure the SCSI id is 6 and the controller is the 0 controller if you have more than one.

-Sometimes the partition you have to mount is the number 2 (c0t0d6s2).

Most of the external CD drive shoe boxes will have a thumb wheel on the back to set the SCSI ID. Set it to ID 6 and connect it to the sun systems motherboard's external scsi connector. Do a probe-scsi-all to make sure that the drive is sensed by the hardware.  The output will also give you the scsi id and the controller number.  At ok prompt give boot -r , and the system will reconfigure the kernel to add this new device.  If the device is sensed under controller 0 then you can use the command
 "mount -F hsfs -oro /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 /cdrom"   to mount the cdrom.  If it is connected to any other controller .for eg. x is the controller number, then use the device name cxt6d0s0.

First, you can check to see that the CD was recognized in the /var/adm/messages file.  Look at the last bootup messages for a couple of lines like this:
<date> mach unix: sd3 at glm0: target 3 lun 0
<date> mach unix: sd3 is /pci@1f,0/pci@1/scsi@1/sd@3,0
that didn't exist before you put your scsi cdrom in using SCSI ID 3...  (if not 3, change the number appropriately

If it is there, definitely try the "touch /reconfigure" and then "reboot" the system.  If you have a CD in your drive while doing this, you should see it at /cdrom when it comes up.
