mount CD0

RNH4 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-17
trying to load an AIX service pack onto the server but whenever I try to mount the CDrom with the command
# mount -o ro /dev/cd0 /cdrom
I continually get the error,
 "can not mount /dev/cd0 on /cdrom; There is a request to a device or an address that does not exist."

I have also tried mounting through SMIT but get the same results.

Am I missing a step?
