goal

How to mount an ISO image as a NetWare volume

fact

Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 2

fix

NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 2 introduces the possibility to mount an ISO image of a CD or DVD as a NetWare volume. This is achieved through the following 2 new NSS commands:

nss /MountImageVolume=path_imagefilename

The above command will add and mount the specified CD or DVD image file as a read-only NSS volume.

nss /RemoveImageVolume=path_imagefilename

The above command will dismount and remove the specified CD or DVD image file as a read-only NSS volume.

The image file must reside on an NSS volume.

For more details, check the  NetWare 6.5 documentation at http://www.novell.com/documentation/nw65/nss_enu/data/brlusae.html

note

A useful application of this feature is the ability to mount the NetWare 6.5 SP2 products CD as an ISO image. This allows you to add products to the server later without the need to have the installation CD with you. Just mount the ISO image found at http://support.novell.com/tools/csp/csplist.html

For older NetWare versions you can use the unsupported CDINST.NLM method described at http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/netware/features/tips/t_mount_iso_images_nw.html
