SUMMARY: HP and CDROM issues

Thanks to Darren Dunham, Peter Ondruska, Annamria Heupke, krenzischek,
and hmnguyen.

The "HPdds options value invalid bits set: 0x4000" is normal in Sol9
and can be ignore.  The tape works fine and I have not experience any
problems with ufsdump over the weekend.

As for the second issue, I grab another CDROM and replace the previous.
Also, I was able to ftp over the necessary packages.  I ran fstyp on 
/dev/dsk/c1t6d0s0 on CD 1/2 and keeps on returning ufs versus hsfs,
hmnguyen recommended mounting as cdfs but I didn't have the opportunity
to attempt this.

---------- original message ----------

I'm installing a new server, Solaris 9 4/04 with core installation,
with the following hardware controllers/config.

   c0t0 - boot disk
   c1t5 - HP DAT-24i (id5, term power jumper set on)
   c1t6 - NEC CDROM  (id6, term power jumper set on)

issue #1
During installation I received the following error message:
(and after installation, during boot)

   HPdds3 optons value invalid bits set: 0x4000

I believed I have all the jumpers set correctly on the HP DAT-24i,
according to HP user/installation guide.  Is the above normal error
message and can be ignore or do I need to investigate the rest of the
SCSI devices within this controller?

There are two devices on this specific SCSI controller, HP DDS3 on
target 5, and NEC CDROM on target 6.  I think there's a parity option
on the CDROM, but it's not set, not sure if this matter?

issue #2
After installation (no patch installation or anything else added) I
can't seem to mount my Solaris CD 1/2 (as HSFS) to add some packages.
I can mount my Solaris CD 2/2 just fine (same command/syntax).

   # mount -F hsfs /dev/dsk/c1t6d0s0 /cdrom
   hsfs mount: /dev/dsk/c1t6d0s0 is not an hsfs file system.

I can boot with the CD 1/2 and do installation, and even burn another
CD 1/2 to make certain it's not the media, I just can't mount as HSFS.

solutions tried
I've searched the archive, and it's not a vold issue.  I attempted to
mount different slice s0/s1/s2/etc. and still the same error message.

Looking forwards to some hints/solutions, thanks in advance.
