Can NetWare5 mount CD drive as a volume?

By Karla ·
I want all the users on a NetWare 5 network to be able to access a single CD. Can I just make the CD drive on the server a volume? How is this done? Are there drawbacks to this that I have not thought of? What are the other possible solutions?

Just put the CD in your server and it should mount automatically with read access for 'everyone'

I put the CD in and the Console screen said it detected new media, but didn't mount anything and I cannot see the CD drive from a user PC.

Type "CDROM" at the System Console with a CD-ROM disk in the drive. You may need to open and close the drive.

If that does not mount the drive, type "NSS /ALLLSS" at the System Console.

If that does not mount the drive, load the CD-ROM driversin the server's CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files and access the CD-ROM via the DOS drivers in NWCONFIG.NLM to install software from the CD-ROM.

This will make the CD a volume on NW5. If you want to do great administration, create a group that has rights to the drive, and put any users in that. I've done this with 30 or 40 users on a network and it works fine.

Also, in NWAdmin, read the help on Drive Objects.

Hope that helps.
