Ticket #1859 (closed defect: worksforme)
can't mount / unmount CD/DVDROM while VM is running (XP host, OpenSolaris guest)
|Reported by:||sdussud||Owned by:|
To install the Solaris Guest additions I've tried to mount/unmount the relevant iso file from the VM -> Device menu with no luck. If I restart rmvolmgr (svcadm restart rmvolmgr), it just does nothing (or unmount what was previously mounted).
Stopping the VM, setting appropriate mount data, and re-starting the VM solve my immediate issue but it looks like mounting from the VM -> device menu does not work. My config is:
host: Windows XP SP2 guest: OpenSolaris 2008.05 (fresh install)
