Mounting FAT-32 partitions in OpenSolaris
By Roman Strobl on Aug 08, 2008
I had a hard time with mounting a FAT-32 partition in OpenSolaris - it just wouldn't mount. Finally I found out that I need to use the -F pcfs parameter to tell mount the filesystem type. It hit me by surprise because in Linux you don't need to specify a parameter - Linux mount will detect the filesystem type for you. So in case you want to mount a FAT-32 partition, the command looks like this:
$ mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c5d0p4 /mnt/dosdisk
Obviously you need to change the controller and partition number according to your hardware/disk partitioning.
