Hi,

first, check whether CIFS support is installed in AIX:

lslpp -l |grep -i cifs

If you don't get any output you'll have to install these filesets from the AIX base OS DVD:

bos.cifs_fs.rte
bos.cifs_fs.smit

After installation you must reboot the AIX machine, that's mandatory!

With CIFS support installed run

"smitty cifs_fsmnt"

and fill in the requested values. The CIFS share will be mounted.

Make a new directory, e.g. /mnt_iso and run (assuming you mounted the CIFS share under /mnt):

loopmount -i /mnt/myimage.iso -o "-V cdrfs -o ro" -m /mnt_iso

Now "cd" to /mnt_iso and you'll see the contents of the image.
