Mount a ISO file in Solaris

Solaris Mount an ISO CD Image

Mounting an Existing ISO CD-ROM Image under Solaris UNIX

If your image name is cd.iso, you can type command:
# lofiadm -a /path/to/cd.iso
Output:

/dev/lofi/1

Please note that the file name argument on lofiadm must be fully qualified and the path must be absolute not relative (thanks to mike for tip).

/dev/lofi/1 is the device, use the same to mount iso image with mount command:
# mount -o ro -F hsfs /dev/lofi/1 /mnt
# cd /mnt
# ls -l
# df -k /mnt

Mount the loopback device as a randomly accessible file system with
mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/X /mnt.
Alternatively, use this combined format:
mount -F hsfs -o ro `lofiadm -a /path/to/image.iso` /mnt
