Solaris 10 : Mounting an ISO Image over the wire
By jhawk on Feb 22, 2007
Today, I was presented with the problem of mounting an ISO image to a system which I didn't have physical access. My first thought was to download the ISO image to my Mac and then burn a DVD from that image. I would then need to get into the car and drive to the office, hope I still have lab access, and then load that DVD into the drive. Given that I'm home today, I thought I'd let my fingers do the walking..
# lofiadm -a /path/to/iso/image/dvd.iso
# mkdir /export/isomnt
# mount -o ro -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/1 /export/isomnt
# cd /export/isomnt
Keep in mind that this will work if you are using Solaris and the CD/DVD that you are mounting is a hsfs filesystem.
