KB-0078: Viewing full file names in HP-UX when mounting the CD

How can I view the full file name in HP-UX when mounting a CD.


When you auto-mount the Centrify DirectControl CD-ROM on HP-UX, file names are displayed in the short name (8.3) format which makes the platform-specific file names for the different agent packages indistinguishable.

If you are manually installing agent packages using the native installation mechanism for each platform, you need to mount the CD-ROM manually using the -o rr (rockridge extensions) flag to display the complete file names.

After you insert the CD in the drive, run a command similar to the following to display the long file names:

mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /mnt/cdrom

You can then change to the Unix directory and determine the proper agent package to install for the local HP-UX operating environment.
