Creating a quick iso in Solaris 11 using mkisof

Just a quickie – I hit a problem where I wanted to get some network drivers onto a X4-2, but, as it had no working network devices I had to use cdrom redirection via the ILOM. Which is great, as long as you have the drivers available as an ISO image.

What you need to do is create an iso filesystem of the directory –

I used the options
-l
-o
-posix-L Follow symbolic links

# mkisofs -l -posix-L -D -o me.iso Sun_Server_X4-2-1.3.1.84513-OS_PACK_WINDOWS-2008R2
 Setting input-charset to 'UTF-8' from locale.
