Mounting an ISO image on HP-UX 11.31

How to mount an ISO image on HP-UX 11.31

The easiest way to mount an ISO image as a normal file system on HP-UX 11.31 is by having cdfs ISO image mount support on the Operating System level. Therefore, install the free product ISOIMAGE-ENH (ISO Image mount Enhancement). The latest version of ISOIMAGE-ENH is available for free at the HP software download site.

Because this product is delivered as a Dynamically Loadable Kernel Module (DLKM) named fspd, use the following commands to load and unload the fspd module after installing the depot:

  • To load:

    # kcmodule fspd=loaded

  • To unload:

    # kcmodule fspd=unused

Mounting an ISO image is then pretty easy:

# mount -F cdfs /media/iso/raidmgr_01-30-03-t1610--10057.iso  /tmp2
# bdf /tmp2
Filesystem          kbytes    used   avail %used Mounted on
/dev/fspd1          285154  285154       0  100% /tmp2
# mount | grep /tmp2
/tmp2 on /dev/fspd1 ro,rr,dev=6000001 on Wed Feb  5 03:30:25 2014
