Usually, the Solaris volume manager vold mounts the CD-ROM under /cdrom/vmwaretools. If the CD-ROM is not mounted, restart the volume manager using the following commands: /etc/init.d/volmgt stop /etc/init.d/volmgt start After the CD-ROM is mounted, change to a working directory (for example, /tmp) and extract VMware Tools by 4 entering the following commands: cd /tmp gunzip -c /cdrom/vmwaretools/vmware-solaris-tools.tar.gz | tar xf - 5 R un the VMware Tools tar installer: cd vmware-tools-distrib ./ Respond to the configuration prompts.

If the CD-ROM does not mount automatically, follow these steps to mount it: 1. Switch user to root: 2. $ su - root 3. If necessary, enter the following command to eject the currently mounted CD-ROM, then remove it from the drive: 4. # eject 5. Insert the first CD-ROM (CD 1) into the CD-ROM drive. 6. To verify that the CD-ROM mounted automatically, enter the following command: 7. # ls /cdrom/cdrom0 8. If the previous command fails to display the contents of the CD-ROM, enter a command similar to the following to mount the CD-ROM: 9. # /usr/sbin/mount -r -F hsfs /dev/dsk/cxtydzs2 /cdrom In this example, /cdrom is the CD-ROM mount point directory and /dev/dsk/cxtydzs2 is the device name for the CD-ROM device, for example /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s2.

10. If the Installer displays the Disk Location dialog box, enter the CD-ROM mount point directory path, for example: o CD-ROM mounted automatically: o /cdrom/cdrom0 o CD-ROM mounted manually: o /cdrom
