VOLD identify the dvd drive as /cdrom/unnamed_cdrom, how to I label the iomega dvd?
Do I need to format it?


Another basic question
There is /vol/dev/rdsk/c1t0d0/unkown_format
There is also use cdrom drive /dev/rdsk/c*s2 dev_cdrom.so cdrom%d in /etc/vold.conf

I suppose the above line in vold.conf is searching all attached to the server.

Do I need to format the DVD? It is already recoganized as /cdrom/unnamed_cdrom.
If not needed to format, how do I label it?


Thanks

I just noticed under
/cdrom

there is /cdrom/cdrom0  which is the first cdrom drive come with the server
and /cdrom/unamed_cdrom which is the second dvd drive attached to the USB port

But there isn't a /cdrom/cdrom1

But if I do #eject cdrom1, it works.

Any idea why there isn't /cdrom/cdrom1?

Thanks

when you use "eject" command use the Nickname or the real device name of the device.

man device

I can't get it to work: try to use iomega dvd drive for solaris 9 from usb port connection.

This is what happend:
Happen @situation (1):
===============
#/etc/init.d/volmgt stop
#mount -F udfs /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 /dvd
udfs mount: /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 is not an udfs file system

#eject cdrom1
cdrom1: No such file or directory

This is what happend:
Happen @situation (2):
================
#/etc/init.d/volmgt start
#mount -F udfs /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 /dvd
mount: /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 is already mounted, /dvd is busy or allowable number of mount points exceeded
it is not mounted from (#df -k) check

#eject cdrom1
cdrom1 which is the iomega dvd did ejected.

If I want to label the DVD ROM
======================
#lableit -F UDFS /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s0 cdrom1 test
labelit: FSType UDFS not installed in the kernel.

What should I do. I have Solaris 9 12/02.
I searched on sunsolve.sun.com, Solaris 7 needs a patch for UDFS related bug, but I have Solaris 9.

Help!

Thanks

Correction:

#labelit -F udfs /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 cdrom1 test1  (this is what i got, udfs instead of UDFS from above.)
udfs labelit: cannot open </dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0> errorno <16>


Thanks
