In Sun Solaris, we can use the Loopback File driver to mount an ISO image without having to write the ISO image onto a CD or DVD.
Following procedure should help you mount an ISO image in Sun Solaris
Attach a Block Device
sunsolaris# lofiadm -a /export/software/iso_image.iso
Mount the ISO Image block device
sunsolaris# mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/1 /mnt
Where /mnt is the mount point.
This should mount the ISO image.
To confirm, change directory to /mnt and do a “ls” to lis the files
sunsolaris# cd /mnt
if at anytime, you want to look at these block devices simply type “lofiadm” command with no arguement.
Block Device File
When we are done with the files on the mounted ISO, we can unmount and detach the Block device we attached earlier:
sunsolaris# umount /mnt
sunsolaris# lofiadm -d /dev/lofi/1
