error when attempting to eject DVD from drive
After inserting a DVD into a drive, a warning message "cannot mount volume" is display; however the DVD is mounted and can be accessed. When attempting to unmount the same drive as a normal user via the command line the folllowing error is displayed (GUI only reports "Cannot umount volume").
bash-4.0$ eject cdrom
eject of cdrom /dev/dsk/c4t0d0s2 failed: Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.113" (uid=101 pid=4664 comm="") interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Storage" member="Eject" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="org.freedesktop.Hal" (uid=0 pid=458 comm=""))
bash-4.0$ pfexec eject cdrom
eject of cdrom /dev/dsk/c4t0d0s2 failed: Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.114" (uid=101 pid=4666 comm="") interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Storage" member="Eject" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="org.freedesktop.Hal" (uid=0 pid=458 comm=""))
The DVD can only be ejected by becoming root
root@fred:~# eject cdrom

Does this happen at the local console (I assume so, but just confirming)?
If you give your user the "Console User" profile (described here: http://bugs.opensolaris.org/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6885612 ), does it still happen?

I have upgraded three very different systems from build 134 to OpenIndiana (build 147), and have installed a clean OpenIndiana VM in VirtualBox. All four exhibit this bug not only with DVD/CD drives, but with USB hard drives and flash drives, both read-only and read-write. The Console User profile does nothing to mitigate the problem. You can only unmount as root (i.e. pfexec). And yes, all are console logins. All have also been 64-bit, although with Solaris that is a less significant issue than with others...!
Immediately upon inserting a disc, flash, or USB drive, it displays a "cannot mount" error, but mounts it anyway, and you cannot unmount/eject except as I described above. This is such a significant annoyance that I have gone back to my 134 install. So sad, because OI looks to be a nice project, and all my apps and scripts work otherwise unhindered.

- Due date set to 2011-09-14
- Status changed from New to Resolved
- Target version set to oi_151_stable
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
- Estimated time set to 1.00 h
This was resolved. I verified it on oi_151a using:
--> pfexec eject cdrom
cdrom /dev/dsk/... ejected (cdrom drive ejects CD/DVD)
if you are not root or have root privs:
---> eject cdrom
eject of cdrom * failed (mounted by another user process))
Then, reinserted CD/DVD... no warning messages and proper mounting and display of CD/DvD contents.
This is on oi_151a. Please reopen if you update and still have further issues.
