I have CW2K running on my Solaris box. Works great. I put in the DFM cd and I get the following message.

Number of symbolic links encountered during path name traversal exceeds MAXSYMLINK

Is this a CW2K issue or an OS issue?

Sounds like an OS issue so far. Are you using the correct DFM version and have all the required OS patches installed?

Is this is on Solaris 7 then it is due to Sun Bug # 4397779. Workaround would be to:


- Eject the CD from the CD Rom drive.

- Issue the command "mount" as root and see if /cdrom/cdrom0 is already mounted. If it is, unmount it by doing : umount /cdrom/cdrom0

- The stop the the volmgt daemon by doing:

/etc/init.d/volmgt stop

- mount F hsfs o ro /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 /cdrom

cd /cdrom

-Continue with CD installation.
