USB flash disk help


I'm new to Solaris. I need to copy my data from my usb flash disk, but i don't know how to configure, how to mount my usb disk.

I did as following:
#dmesg --> check if my usb is connected to the workstation, it works!!

but when i use this command
#iostat -En
to take the name of my usb, I can't see it??? There is just hard drive and CDRom.

and how I mount my usb to a directory, for exemple /mnt/flashdrive


I use Solaris 9 on Sparc. Someone help me? Thanks in advance.

try this
make the /rmdisk directory
mkdir /rmdisk

then restart the volume management service
/etc/init.d/volmgt stop
/etc/init.d/volmgt start
put in the usb drive
run volcheck

then just cd to /rmdisk
you should see the usb drive mounted to /rmdisk/usb0 or something there about.

If volume management doesn't work you can all ways mount it by hand.
It looks something like this
mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0:c /mnt/usb
for some reason usb drives need to have the :c at the end of the device and slice.
you just need to find out what device in /dev/dsk it is you want to mount.

hope this helps.
heres the link to the sun docs page http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/817...b+drive&a=view
