Mount NTFS in Solaris 11

May 22, 2012

1. Grab these two files: FSWpart.tar.gz and FSWfsmisc.tar.gz

2. Rename files:

# mv  fswpart-tar-gz-remove.png FSWpart.tar.gz
# mv  fswfsmisc-tar-gz-remove.png FSWfsmisc.tar.gz

3. Install the packages.

# tar -zxvf FSWpart.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf FSWfsmisc.tar.gz
# pkgadd -d . FSWpart
# pkgadd -d . FSWfsmisc
Select “y” if prompted for conflict in files:
The following files are already installed on the system and are being used by another package:
* /etc/gnome-vfs-2.0 <attribute change only>
* /etc/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules <attribute change only>
* /usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0 <attribute change only>
* /usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules <attribute change only>
* /usr/sbin/mkntfs
* /usr/sbin/ntfsclone
* /usr/sbin/ntfscp
* /usr/sbin/ntfslabel
* /usr/sbin/ntfsresize
* /usr/sbin/ntfsundelete
* - conflict with a file which does not belong to any package.
Do you want to install these conflicting files [y,n,?,q] y

4. Find the target partition

# iostat -En

5. Mount partitions in the devices into folders you like:

# mkdir /mnt/d
# mount -F ntfs /dev/dsk/c5t0d0p3 /mnt/d

6. Add mount targets to /etc/vfstab

/dev/dsk/c5t0d0p2 - /mnt/c ntfs - yes -
/dev/dsk/c5t0d0p3 - /mnt/d ntfs - yes -

    Geez man, I need those files.
    It seems like they disappeared from the web, and Oracle hasn’t added ntfs support on S11 yet.
    or at least not officially.
