How to install autosys from .iso file instead of transfer individual files over the Network with FTP?


Assume that the ISO image is in /export/temp/software.iso, a loopback file device (/dev/lofi/1) is created with the following command on Sun Solaris:

lofiadm -a /export/temp/software.iso /dev/lofi/1

The lofi device creates a block device version of a file. This block device can be mounted to /mnt with the following command:

mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/1 /mnt

These commands can be combined into a single command:

mount -F hsfs -o ro 'lofiadm -a /export/temp/software.iso' /mnt

Then you're ready to start the installation from this mount point.
