In this scenario I have some ITM files on an AIX server that I’d like to package up to an ISO file that I can transfer to my PC and then mount on a VMWARE linux guest via vSphere.
Create the ISO file with…
mkisofs -R -o /dir/output_filename.iso /dir/dir_containing_files
When complete this can be mounted using vSphere, however, if VMWARE tools has not been installed on the linux guest and you try to run a shell script you may well encounter something like: –
-bash: ./installITM.sh: /bin/ksh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
After installing VMWARE tools, and remounting with…
mount -o mode=755,remount /media/CDROM
you’ll find the script will run ok (well at least it did for me).
Note : I found the mkisofs command works ok too to create an ISO file to be mounted on a VIOS virtual optical device (vtopt).
