the volume daemon uses rmmount to mount CD-ROMs.
This command mounts filesystems with the nosuid flag set.
Is there a workarround to use set-uid programs on CD-ROMs,
which was mounted via volume daemon?
This doesn't seem to be one of the things you can easily modify viaQuote:

But perhaps you should explain why you want to do such a mind-numbingly
insecure thing in the first place?

Using Solaris 2.3, I am having trouble NFS mounting a CD-ROM filesystem
that was mounted with the volume manager (vold) on its local system.
The mount itself succeeds, but there is never any real data available
under the mount point. The volume manager seems to provide links such
that the CD-ROM filesystem is available both under /cdrom and under /vol,
so I've tried NFS mounting both of those, but with no luck.
If however, I turn off vold for the CD-ROM and just manually mount it
with something like:
mount -r -F hsfs /dev/c0t6d0s2 /cdrom
I can then NFS mount the /cdrom filesystem on another machine without
Does anyone know how to properly NFS mount a filesystem that was
orginally mounted by the volume manager on its local filesystem? Perhaps
there is a specific directory that I must NFS mount?
Thanks very much.
