NAME

cdmntsuppl - Sets and gets administrative CD-ROM features  

SYNOPSIS

To get current settings for features on the mounted CD-ROM:

/usr/sbin/cdmntsuppl mount_point

To set features for files and directories that have a restricted final Extended Attribute Record (XAR) or no final XAR:

/usr/sbin/cdmntsuppl [-u owner] [-g group] [-F mode] [-D mode] [-c | [-l] [-m]] mount_point

To set features for files and directories that have an unrestricted XAR:

/usr/sbin/cdmntsuppl [-U umfile] [-G gmfile] [-c | [-l] [-m]] [-x | -s] mount_point  

FLAGS

Causes names to be handled as recorded on the CD-ROM; that is, no conversion takes place. This is the default behavior. The -c flag undoes the conversions performed by the -l and -m flags. Sets the default read and search permissions for directories. The permissions are changed according to mode, which may be expressed (as with the chmod command) either octally or symbolically.

Octal mode consists of a 4-digit octal number constructed from the sum (logical-OR) of the following:
0400read by owner
0100execute by owner
0040read by group
0010execute by group
0004read by others
0001execute by others

Symbolic mode is expressed using the following syntax:
[a|ugo] {+|-|=} [r|x] Represents all users (user, group, other). Represents user, group, and other, respectively. Omitting all of these parameters is the same as specifying all of them. Specifies adding, removing, or assigning permission absolutely. Note that when you assign permission absolutely, all other bits are reset. Specifies the type of permission, either read or execute. Note that omitting this option is useful only when using the = option to remove all permissions.
The -D flag is used for files and directories that have a restricted or no final XAR and therefore cannot be used with the -G, -s, -U, or -x flags. Sets the default read and execute permissions for files. This flag takes the same mode and has the same restrictions as the -D flag. Changes the GID of a file or directory. The entries in the file specified by the gmfile argument must conform to the following syntax:
GID_on_CD-ROM:{New_GID|Group_Name}
If there is more than one mapping entry, each entry must be separated by a newline. The total number of mapping entries that gmfile can contain is defined in cdfs/xcdr.h, an include file that is called into sys/cdrom.h. Sets the group permissions of files and directories.
The group parameter can be either a decimal GID or a group name found in the Group Database.
The -g flag applies only to files and directories with a restricted or no final XAR and therefore cannot be used with the G, s, U, or x flags. Converts uppercase characters to lowercase. If the File Identifier contains no File Name Extension, SEPARATOR 1, a dot (.), is not represented. Causes the Version Number and SEPARATOR 2 of a File Identifier, a semi-colon (;), not to be represented. Sets each execute (search) permission bit for a directory in the XSI file hierarchy to the inclusive OR of the corresponding read and execute (search) bits in the XAR of that directory on the CD-ROM.
The -s flag cannot be specified with the -D, -F, -g, -u, or -x flag. Changes the UID of a file or directory. The mapping entries in the file specified by the umfile argument must conform to the following syntax:
UID_on_CD-ROM:{New_UID|User_Name}
If there is more than one mapping entry, each entry must be separated by a newline. The total number of entries that umfile can contain is defined in cdfs/xcdr.h, an include file that is called into sys/cdrom.h.
Because the -U flag applies only to files and directories with an unrestricted XAR, this flag cannot be used with the -D, -F, -g, or -u flag. Sets the owner of files and directories.
The owner parameter can be either a decimal UID or a login name found in the User Database.
Because the -u flag applies only to files and directories with a restricted or no final XAR, this flag cannot be used with the -G, -s, -U, or -x flag. Sets execute (search) permission bits for directories within the CD-ROM file system hierarchy as provided in the Permissions field in the XAR of that directory.
The -x flag cannot be used with the -D, -F, -g, -s, or -u flag.
 

PARAMETERS

Specifies the mount point of the CD-ROM file system being accessed.  

DESCRIPTION

The cdmntsuppl command sets up administrative CD-ROM features, such as default ownership and access permissions, mapping of user and group identifications, conversions of file names, and the setting of execute permissions for directories.

Setting CD-ROM features is restricted to users with the appropriate privileges. Note that you must be superuser to change administrative features; to read the current settings, you must have read permission on the mount point of the selected CD-ROM file system. This command is intended to be used to set CD-ROM features directly after the CD-ROM is mounted and before its files and directories are accessed. Attempting to use this function to set CD-ROM features after files or directories on the CD-ROM have been accessed may produce unpredictable results.

Executing the command with no flags lists the current settings on the mounted CD-ROM.

When the command includes flags to set features, the new setting is echoed to the screen if the command completes successfully. The command's flags are designed to be used in specific combinations, as described in the following list: The -l and -m flags perform name conversions of File and Directory Identifiers on a CD-ROM, which can be undone with the -c flag. Note that whereas the -l and -m flags can be used together, the -c must be used only by itself, since it undoes the conversions the other two perform. The -u, -g, -F, and -D flags set the default owner, group, and access permissions for the files and directories that have a restricted final Extended Attribute Record (XAR) or no final XAR. The -U and -G flags are used to change user and group ownership on a CD-ROM file system with an unrestricted XAR. Note that the ISO 9660 standard does not permit a UID or GID of zero to appear in an unrestricted XAR. Placing a zero value in a UID or GID of an unrestricted XAR may result in unpredictable behavior. The -x and -s flags, which are mutually exclusive, set the execute (search) permissions for those directories in the CD-ROM file system hierarchy that have a unrestricted final XAR.  

EXIT VALUES

The cdmntsuppl command returns the following exit values: The command was successful. The named mount_point was not found or was not within the CD-ROM hierarchy, or access permission was denied. The mount() system call that was executed by the command returned an error. One cause of this error is that the user did not have the appropriate privileges to perform the mount operation. Too many mappings. Parameter error or bad format in the mapping file (file specified by the umfile or gmfile parameters).
