1. Check the ISO image size.
# ls -al | grep myfile.iso -rw-r--r-- 1 root system 193123444 Jan 30 00:30 myfile.iso
2. As above example, the image is approximately 193MB, so use 194MB as an image size. Create a logical volume for the ISO image.
# mklv -y cdlv -s n -L /dev/cdlv rootvg 194M hdisk0
If the command fails, increase the volume size by a multiple of 128.
3. Create a pseudo-device.
# dd if=/myiso.iso of=/dev/cdlv
This command may take a long time and will create two dd processes.
4. Mount the device like a CD-ROM in AIX. Ensure that the mount point is exist, if not create a new directory to mount it.
# mount -v cdrfs -o ro /dev/cdlv /mnt/isofolder
5. Change directory into /mnt/isofolder
# cd /mnt/isofolder # ls
