That's generally not true: System s like HP-UX have persistent I/O-path to 
name mappings (/etc/ioconfig, etc.), but systems like Linux recreate the 
every boot or every module load. If you use non-continuous LUNs and then 
the SCSI module, the device names after a filled gap will change. Same for FC
