Hi All,

pfs_mount -v -o xlat=unix /app/Depot/OVO/B7490-15268.iso /app/Depot/OVO_SPI
Version: 2.9.3F (UNLIMITED) Built: Sun Jul 25 16:39:53 PDT 1999
pfs_mount: /app/Depot/OVO/B7490-15268.iso on /app/Depot/OVO_SPI: open failed: Value too large@
pfs_mount: giving up on /app/Depot/OVO_SPI

I checked my system and patches:

Re: pfs_mount error

Shalom Fat,

Any oracle documentation referring to the use of pfs_mount should be ignored.

/usr/sbin/mount -F cdfs -e -o ro,rr /dev/dsk/c3t2d0 /cdrom

For more, see:
http://www.hpux.ws/?p=20

That is the command that should be used.

Re: pfs_mount error

Hi,

I won't burn the iso to DVD, but I prefer to mount it.

Other suggestions?

Re: pfs_mount error

Hi All,

I haven't got a cd or dvd, I have got an iso image on my filesystem:

ll /app/Depot/OVO/B7490-15268.iso

-rw-r----- 1 rootsys 2256711680 Oct 5 15:33 /app/Depot/OVO/B7490-15268.iso

I need to mount it, because I haven't got a DVD driver on my system.

Re: pfs_mount error

I think it is unlikely to get the image mounted on 11.11.

Consider either to use nfs from somewhere else (linux?) or even to burn it.
Of course you can extract the image on your PC and transfer the files only.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: pfs_mount error

pfs is completely deprecated for many reasons and the 2GB limit is just one. The DVD in your system (if it mounts HP CDs just fine) doesn't need any special driver to read a DVD burned as a large CD. However, there is nothing in HP-UX that can "mount" a disk ISO image. You must ftp the ISO image to a PC with a DVD writer and use burning software that understands a large ISO image and can burn it to the disc. Alternatively, you can download the cd+dvd tools from:

http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPUXDVDWRITE

Then burn the image onto the DVD (assuming you have a DVD writer on your system.
