Oracle product is delivered on more than one CD-ROM. The CD-ROMs are in ISO 9660 format with Rockridge extensions. This appendix describes how to mount and unmount a CD-ROM on each supported platform. It includes information on the following topics:

Mounting CD-ROMs on AIX

To mount a CD-ROM on AIX:

  1. Switch user to root:
    $ su - root
    
    
  2. If necessary, enter the a command similar to following to unmount the currently mounted CD-ROM, then remove it from the drive:
    # umount /cdrom
    
    

    In this example, /cdrom is the mount point directory for the CD-ROM drive.

  3. Insert the appropriate CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, then enter a command similar to the following to mount it:
    # /usr/sbin/mount -rv cdrfs /dev/cd0 /cdrom
    
    

    In this example, /dev/cd0 is the device name of the CD-ROM drive and /cdrom is the mount point directory.

  4. If the Installer is displaying the Disk Location dialog box, enter the CD-ROM mount point directory path, for example:
    /cdrom
    
    

Mounting CD-ROMs on HP-UX

To mount a CD-ROM on HP-UX:

  1. Switch user to root:
    $ su - root
    
    
  2. If necessary, enter the following command to unmount the currently mounted CD-ROM, then remove it from the drive:
    # /usr/sbin/umount /SD_CDROM
    
    

    In this example, /SD_CDROM is the mount point directory for the CD-ROM drive.

  3. Insert the appropriate CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, then enter a command similar to the following to mount it:
    # /usr/sbin/mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/cxtydz /SD_CDROM
    
    
    In this example, /SD_CDROM is the CD-ROM mount point directory and /dev/dsk/cxtydz is the device name for the CD-ROM device, for example /dev/dsk/c0t2d0.
    

    Note:

    To use the this command on the operating system versions listed, the appropriate patches must be installed on the system:For HP-UX 11.00: Install patches PHCO_26449, PHKL_26448, and PHKL_26450

    For HP-UX 11i (11.11): install patches PHCO_25841, PHKL_26269, and PHKL_28025

  4. If the Installer displays the Disk Location dialog box, enter the CD-ROM mount point directory path, for example:
    /SD_CDROM
    
    

Mounting CD-ROMs on Linux

On most Linux systems, the CD-ROM mounts automatically when you insert it into the CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM does not mount automatically, follow these steps to mount it manually.

To mount a CD-ROM on Linux:

  1. Switch user to root:
    $ su - root
    
    
  2. If necessary, enter a command similar to one of the following to unmount the currently mounted CD-ROM, then remove it from the drive:
  3. Red Hat:
    # eject /mnt/cdrom
    
    
  4. UnitedLinux:
    # eject /media/cdrom
    
    
  5. In these examples, /mnt/cdrom and /cdrom are the mount point directories for the CD-ROM drive.
  6. Insert the appropriate CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
  7. To verify that the CD-ROM mounted automatically, enter one of the following commands depending on your platform:
    • Red Hat:
      # ls /mnt/cdrom
      
      
    • UnitedLinux:
      # ls /media/cdrom
      
      
  8. If the command in step 4 fails to display the contents of the CD-ROM, enter a command similar to the following to mount it, depending on your platform:
    • Red Hat:
      # mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
      
      
    • UnitedLinux:
      # mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
      
      

    In these examples, /mnt/cdrom and /media/cdrom are the mount point directories for the CD-ROM drive.

  9. If the Installer displays the Disk Location dialog box, enter the CD-ROM mount point directory path, for example:
    /mnt/cdrom
    
    

Mounting CD-ROMs on Solaris

On most Solaris systems, the CD-ROM mounts automatically when you insert it into the CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM does not mount automatically, follow these steps to mount it:

  1. Switch user to root:
    $ su - root
    
    
  2. If necessary, enter the following command to eject the currently mounted CD-ROM, then remove it from the drive:
    # eject
    
    
  3. Insert the first CD-ROM (CD 1) into the CD-ROM drive.
  4. To verify that the CD-ROM mounted automatically, enter the following command:
    # ls /cdrom/cdrom0
    
    
  5. If the previous command fails to display the contents of the CD-ROM, enter a command similar to the following to mount the CD-ROM:
    # /usr/sbin/mount -r -F hsfs /dev/dsk/cxtydzs2 /cdrom
    
    
    In this example, /cdrom is the CD-ROM mount point directory and /dev/dsk/cxtydzs2 is the device name for the CD-ROM device, for example /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s2.
    
  6. If the Installer displays the Disk Location dialog box, enter the CD-ROM mount point directory path, for example:
    • CD-ROM mounted automatically:
      /cdrom/cdrom0
      
      
    • CD-ROM mounted manually:
      /cdrom
      
      

Mounting CD-ROMs on Tru64 UNIX

To mount a CD-ROM, follow these steps:

  1. Switch user to root:
    $ su - root
    
    
  2. If necessary, enter a command similar to the following to unmount the currently mounted CD-ROM, then remove it from the drive:
    # /usr/sbin/umount /cdrom
    
    

    In this example, /cdrom is the mount point directory for the CD-ROM drive.

  3. Insert the appropriate CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, then enter a command similar to the following to mount it:
    # /usr/sbin/mount -t cdfs -o nodefperm,noversion /dev/disk/cdrom0c /cdrom
    
    

    In this example, /cdrom is the CD-ROM mount point directory, which must exist, and /dev/disk/cdrom0c is the CD-ROM device name.

  4. If the Installer is displaying the Disk Location dialog box, enter the CD-ROM mount point directory path, for example:
    /cdrom
