If you encounter problems with volume management, check the /var/adm/vold.log file for information. An example of this file follows:

If you want to display debugging messages from the volume daemon, you can start the daemon by typing /usr/sbin/vold -v -L 10. With these flags set, the volume daemon logs quite a bit of information in /var/adm/vold.log.
Another way to gather debugging information is to run the rmmount command with the debug flag. To do so, edit /etc/vold.conf and change the lines that have /usr/sbin/rmmount to include the -D flag, as shown in the following example:
insert /vol*/dev/diskette[Ø-9]/* user=root /usr/sbin/rmmount -D
Volume management automatically mounts CD-ROM file systems on the /cdrom mount point when you insert the media into the drive.
When you insert a diskette in the diskette drive, you must ask the system to check the diskette drive. You can check for a diskette in any one of the following ways:
When you use any of these methods, the files are mounted on the /floppy mount point. Table 3-6 describes the mount points and how volume management uses them.
|Medium||Mount Point||State of Medium|
|Diskette||/floppy/floppy0||Symbolic link to mounted diskette in local diskette drive|
|/floppy/floppy-name||Mounted named diskette|
|/floppy/unnamed_floppy||Mounted unnamed diskette|
|CD-ROM||/cdrom/cdrom0||Symbolic link to mounted CD-ROM in local CD-ROM drive|
|/cdrom/CD-ROM-name||Mounted named CD-ROM|
|/cdrom/CD-ROM-name/partition||Mounted named CD-ROM with partitioned file system|
|/cdrom/unnamed_cdrom||Mounted unnamed CD-ROM|
If the medium does not contain a file system, volume management provides block and character devices in the /vol file system, as shown in Table 3-7.
|Medium||Device Location||State of Medium|
|Diskette||/vol/dev/diskette0/unnamed_floppy||Formatted unnamed diskette-block device access|
|/vol/dev/rdiskette0/unnamed_floppy||Formatted unnamed diskette--raw device access|
|/vol/dev/diskette0/unlabeled||Unlabeled diskette--block diskette-raw device access|
|CD-ROM||/vol/dev/dsk/c0t6/unnamed_cdrom||CD-ROM--block device access|
|/vol/dev/rdsk/c0t6/unnamed_cdrom||CD-ROM--raw device access|
The following sections describe how to access files from local and remote CD-ROM drives.
