Mounting a Solaris x86 CD/DVD from a remote Windows CD/DVD-ROM drive

Greetings, all.
Is it possible to mount a remote Windows CD/DVD-ROM drive? I have the Solaris 10x86 Companion Software DVD sitting in a CD/DVD-ROM drive that's installed on a Windows server on my network. It is shared-out (F:) and the two servers can ping each other. I've also confirmed the NFS services/daemons are running on the Solaris x86 machine. I've tried the following variations but, all have failed to produce successful results:
# mount -F nfs x.x.x.x:/f /mnt
nfs mount: x.x.x.x: : RPC: Program not registered
nfs mount: retrying: /mnt
# mount -F hsfs x.x.x.x:/f /mnt
mount: No such device
mount: cannot mount x.x.x.x:/f
# mount -F hsfs x.x.x.x:/F /mnt
mount: No such device
mount: cannot mount x.x.x.x:/F
[FYI: S10_106_SOFTWARE is the DVD's label as reported by Windows Explorer.]

mount: cannot mount x.x.x.x:/F/S10_106_SOFTWARE
I've also tried mounting it at bootup by adding the appropriate entry in the /etc/vfstab file but, this does not work as well. I've tried Google'ing for an answer to my issue but, I haven't been able to find anything that applies directly to what I'm reporting. It's usually chatter about mounting from one UNIX server to another. Any advice from the community would be greatly appreciated.

After three weeks, you deserve a reply. Windoze does
not natively support NFS.Also deserves a decent answer...
There are two ways to do this:
Install Microsoft's free "Windows Services for UNIX," which includes a Windows NFS server; or
Install the 'sharity' package (google for it); it provides Solaris systems the ability to mount Windows shares

  • Transfer file from UNIX to windows application server G:\ drive

    Dear Expert,
    Really need some help on this, very urgent !
    The download program schedule in background to allow file store in unix.
    Can we do a unix command in abap program to transfer the file from unix to windows application server G:\ drive.
    The gateway for that application server is .
    Anyone have the sample source code ?

    If the requirement need not necessarily require a FM to transfer a file, then you can also use transaction 'CG3Y' to transfer a file
    from application server to presentation server.
    Try to use FM  DOCFILE_SERVER_TO_CLIENT. I am using it to download a file from SAP application server to desktop.
    Source path should be application server file path along with file name i.e. /tmp/sample.xls.
    Target path should be something like c:\file.xls.

  • Trying to create new DVD from selected portions of existing DVD

    I have a DVD I created of my son singing from a video we copied into the Mac several months ago. I can't find the file on the MAC and I'm not sure it would help with my objective if i found it. The video tape has been taped over.
    I want to capture selected portions of the old DVD onto a new DVD.
    Using a camcorder and a different tape, I learned tha I-movie lets me capture clips directly from the camcorder.
    How do I create clips from the old DVD and import them into iMovie like the camcorder allowed me to do. Once I create the clips, is it difficult to create a new DVD from the clips. This is a new process to me. It may be an easy step I'm missing, but missing that step is a show stopper. Can someone help. -- thanks

    Tapeing over an old tape - has it's major disadvantages. You'll never get that
    same good quality again. The DVD disc has a very much lower quality than the original
    what ever way You choose.
    Easy: Connect Your Camera to a set-top DVD player and copy to a new tape.
    Best quality I've got.
    More elaborate (read pricey) use a video-bridge (some Cameras can do this)
    Lazy and not that expencive: Buy Roxio Toast™ and let it convert back to streamingDV
    that iMovie can handle. Probably about the same quality as copy to tape.
    And don't put a mini DVD disc into Your Mac. You need a trayloaded DVD to do this.

  • Playing MP3 DVD from Mac on Windows

    Does anyone know if an MP3 playlist burned to DVD from iTunes on a Mac, will play on a current Dell running recent Windows XP with iTunes?

    Were the MP3s just burned to the DVD as data files?
    If so, I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't
    play in Windows.
    I am yet to burn the DVD and did not know if the MP3 setting would burn a DVD since it is only labeled as CD. As an MP3 setting, I expect the resulting disc (let's say a CD to simplifiy this point) would be formatted for both Mac & Windows especially since some portable MP3 players will not play Mac OS extended (as I understand it).
    However, a data file could be another matter. It would be most appropriate for Apple to format a data file burn also for both Mac & Windows but I was not sure if they had. Thus my question. I know of no way to check on my Mac, if the resultant disc has Joliet since once it recognizes Mac OS extended, it only reports that format even on discs I know are hybrids.
    Anyone know how to check if a disc formated with Mac OS extended is also formated with Windows format?

  • My user folder has disappeared from my hard drive though if I do a find for it it says it is still there. Anyone know how to restore it. I can drag a duplicate from the find window onto the hard drive but don't want two copies with one hidden.

    My user folder has suddenly disappeared from my hard drive though if I do a find for it it comes up as still being there with all its data. Can drag a duplicate copy from the find window back onto the hard drive but don't want two copies there with one of them hidden. Any suggestions anyone?

    Did you update to 10.9.3?
    If you did then update to iTunes 11.2.1.
    That is the fix for that problem.

  • Downloading DVD from Cannon DC230 using FUJIFILM DVD -R 3inch disk, its just not working, no matter what I try

    When I connect my camcorder to the imac the screen on the camcorder goes grey and green lettering is on this screen, PC CONNECT, then a window opens on the pc, it tells me I have inserted a blank DVD, now this DVD is full as I only used it last week, The new window asks me to choose an action from the pop-up menu, I have tried all and even more but nothing happens.

  • How to eject a DVD from Power Mac G5 CD/DVD drive?

    I already know the trick about holding down the mouse button while the computer starts up, and whatever is in the CD/DVD drive will eject. But that does not work in this case, because my computer will no longer startup. No startup chime. The power light comes on, and that is it. It is possible that the DVD in the drive may be causing the problem, because I can hear the computer checking the drive at startup, and then the startup sequence stops. Besides I need to get the DVD back to the movie rental place.
    My old PC had a small hole that you could insert a paperclip in to force a CD/DVD drive to eject, even with power off. I don't see that on this computer (Power Mac G5 [late 2005]).
    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    See if iTunes can eject it.

    Might try this...
    >On your main hard drive, dig down into System > Library > CoreServices > Menu Extras. Inside that window, double-click on the icon called
    And one more way I'd not heard of...
    The old iMac didn't have a disk inside, but the mechanism was "frozen" for some reason. I took a long strip of plastic and ran in and out of the superdrive slot; eventually, the drive made that familiar mechanical the usually occurs after ejection.

  • Solaris 10 as print server for remote Windows

    Fellow SparcMeisters,
    I'm having problem printing from Windoze XP/98/etc machines to an HPLJ 5000 attached to a SunBlade running Solaris 10. Before upgrading from Solaris 9 to 10 in December, printing was flawless. Now all that prints are line after line, page after page of raw PCL and PostScript:
    ^[%[email protected] JOB
    et cetera
    As background:
    * Solaris 2.51, 2.7, and 9 worked flawlessly.
    * Local printing and remote printing from another Sun or Macintosh OSX are flawless.
    * I've tried various printer drivers on the Windoze machines: HP Postscript, HP PCL6, Generic PS, Generic PCL6.
    * I've tried various definitions in the Solaris print manager: Generic PS, Generic PCL6, foomatic/PostScript, foomatic/hpljs
    * I've tried various postscript settings on the windows side: with/without control-D before or after, ascii or binary
    * I've sent the jobs by lp and by ipp.
    * lpstat -a reports:
         HPLJPS accepting requests since December 20, 2007 ...
    * svcs -a | grep print ... reports:

         online 14:10:58 svc:/application/cde-printinfo:default
    Assistance in re-establishing such remote printing would be greatly appreciated. Please be kind about my running Windoze on some machines here. My work here requires it. :(

    Thanks to Tim Croteau of Sun, a work around was found for this problem.
    A printer definition should be made as:
    lpadmin -p somename -v /dev/somedevice -T unknown -I any
    For my use, the commands were:
    lpadmin -p HPLJ5000 -v /dev/ecpp0 -T unknown -I any -o banner=never
    accept HPLJ5000
    enable HPLJ5000
    That I can see, Solaris Print Manager does not provide a GUI-way to do this directly.
    Using the Print Manager, defining the printer as it is, an HPLJ 5000, seems to cause the postScript input to be filtered. To prevent any filtering the Type must be "unknown" and the Content must be "any".
    By the way, this printer definition can be in addition to a printer definition to the same printer for local use. For such local use, the Print Manager can define the printer as an HP LaserJet 5000 printing PostScript.

  • Best way to screen sahre from a remote Windows computer

    The title says it all...
    While at work I am forced to use a Windows there a way to access my server and screen share with my server and it's connected computers noting that I am looking for an Apple specific solution [i.e. I don't want to use Team Viewer, LogMeIn or anything along those lines] particularly given this is one of the main reasons I am setting up a server in the first place...
    I know that I can VPN into my server but how do I then screen  please...

    Linc Davis wrote:
    If you've correctly forwarded the port, that should work. But it would be safer to connect through the VPN, rather than leaving the Screen Sharing service exposed to the Internet.
    I don't use Windows and I can't recommend a Windows VNC client.
    Appreciate the response, a few more follow ups:
    1.  Agree, the preferred and more secure method would be to VPN into the OS X Server and then initiate the VNC client.  But, if I follow this approach / method then
    a.) Is my understanding correct that I need not open Port 5900 on the router because I will already be connected to the OS X Server?
    b) Should the answer to 1a) be correct than how does the VNC client know to initiate / launch the screen sharing request on the OS X Server instead of the Windows machine?
    2.  Is the general approach / method for accessing services outside of the network to connect via VPN and then proceed from there once connected to the OS X Server and this approach is more secure because i) there are fewer ports open to the internet [i.e. only the VPN port needs to be left open] ad ii) VPN connections are in themselves secure relative to others?
    3.  With an Airport Extreme Router in place does this mean that when I initiate an OS X Server service [i.e. screen sharing] that I should therefore reverse / undo the automatic opening of the external ports?
    While related to the previous approach [i.e. tunneling in through the VNC client] , any added information or insight you could provide as to how / why the VNC client's request to the OS X Server will be directed to the OS X Server's screen sharing port and thus initiate a screen sharing session would be greatly appreciated as I am struggling with this part.

  • Can you put the small DVD discs from a camcorder in the DVD slot of the iMac?

    Stupid question...can you put the small DVDs from a camcorder in the DVD slot of the iMac?

    That could be a challenge. If I am not mistaken that camera strictly records to DVD - RW and has no digital output connectors, is that right?
    My only experience with a camera like that was a bad one. I was able to get the video off the disc using a tray-loading iMac but it was painfully slow.
    iMovie (for example) is designed to work with camcorders such as those specified in this reference:
    I cannot find the DCR-DVD92 in that database
    You might consider finding an external USB slot-loading DVD drive, but as I say my experience was painfully slow, and you might run into file format compatibility challenges.
    I am sure it's possible but it won't be as easy as importing video from something like an iPad or iPhone. I still use a camcorder on occasion but it has a FireWire port. That's easy.
