How to mount a USB thumb drive on an AW51F/G.
— Dave Johnson, EOSYS
To mount the USB drive:
# cd /dev/dsk # devfsadm -C
This will remove any residual symbolic links
# ls -l c*0 | grep usb
This finds the dev number to be mounted depending on what is connected to which USB port, could be c2t0d0s0, c3t0d0s0, etc.
# mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s0:c /mnt
Now the USB drive is mounted on /mnt
# umount /mnt # eject /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s0
Your device is now safe to remove.
You should run “devfsadm -C” to clean up the symbolic links to clear up any confusion next time you go to mount the device.
