Mounting cdrom over nfs can't see files

Mounting cdrom over nfs can't see files

Mounting cdrom over nfs can't see files

I need to mount a dvd drive from one Sol10 box to another.

I used `share` to export the cdrom directory.

Used `mount` on remote machine and I can see the directory listing...
but I can't see any files, just directories.

Not a Solaris guru, any ideas?


RE: Mounting cdrom over nfs can't see files

I just tried mounting and sharing a CD with no issues.

Can we see the output of 'mount -v' (both client and server) and the full commands you used to mount and share both the CD and the NFS mount?

RE: Mounting cdrom over nfs can't see files

On machine with dvd drive(aka saturn):
share /cdrom # forgot the exact commands I used in notes at work
mount -v
/vol/dev/dsk/c0t6d0/dvd-r138711.1-1-01 on /cdrom/dvd-r138711.1-1-01 type udfs read-only/nosetuid/nodevices/rstchown/dev=16c0002 on Tue Aug 28 16:37:52 2012

On machine without dvd drive:

mkdir -p /saturn/cdrom
mount saturn:/cdrom /saturnbill/cdrom
mount -v
saturn:/cdrom on /saturnbill/cdrom type nfs remote/read/write/setuid/devices/xattr/dev=560022b on Tue Aug 28 20:06:52 2012

Again, it mounts fine. I can see directories structure, and directories many levels down. Just no files in the directories.
I can see all the files from the saturn machine.



RE: Mounting cdrom over nfs can't see files

I had similar problems reading from a solaris to linux machine.

I found a workaround. Never did like dealing with optical drives on unix.
