Close.  'devfsadm -C' removes device files if the *device* is gone.
However in your case the device is still present (but no longer
connected to storage).

How a device is handled depends on your storage driver(s).  Some can
handle removal without a reboot, some can't.

Best would be if you could go in with cfgadm and disable the storage.

I think the Solaris device does still exist in the kernel and storage
driver.  Does "long time ago" mean before or after the last reboot?

You have to ask the device driver to do it, and there's no global way of
asking.  'cfgadm disable ...' would be the usual way for a recent
Sun-supplied san driver.
