I would like to know if there is a possibility to mount a ISO file on HP-UX?
I created a ISO image of a CD-ROM and copied that file to a HP-system (w/o CD-ROM)

Last attempt was command: mount -F cdfs -o ro,cdcase,rr /path/to/file.iso /mountpoint
I received the following error:
mount: /path/to/file.iso is an invalid operand

Install the Rock-Ridge extension patches instead and never worry about these problems.
For HP-UX 11.00 you will need forget all about PFS and install PHKL_26448, PHCO_26449, and PHKL_26450 to have
HP-UX recognize those file systems automatically on mount!
For HP-UX 11i you need PHCO_25841, PHKL_26269 , and PHKL_25760.
No need thereafter to use -o cdfs to mount anymore, provided you enter the CD drive in /etc/fstab like this:
/dev/cd0 /cdrom cdfs ro,rr,noauto 0 0
This patches were the ones I used back in 2003 so they may very well be superseded...
All the best

HP-UX only supports block and character devices
CDRTOOLS might be very helpful. Not that it will enably you to mount the file, but it will give you utilities like isoinfo and mkisofs
Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
