You may want to disable volume management completely for some users. To do so, use the following steps.
Rename the /etc/rc2.d/S92volmgt script as /etc/rc2.d/XS92volmgt. With the X prefix, the file is never started and you can always remove the X at a later time to restore volume management functionality.
Type /etc/init.d/volmgt stop and press Return.
You could also disable only part of volume management and leave other parts functional. You may, for example, want to automatically mount CD-ROMs but use the Solaris 2.0 method for accessing files on a diskette. You can do so by commenting out the lines for diskettes in the /etc/vold.conf file, as shown below.
# @(#)vold.conf 1.21 96/05/10 ...
