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. > However the devices definitely don't exist anymore. I've deleted the > disk from the SAN long time ago. 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? > How would you remove the dangling device entries (without rebooting) if > devfsadm -C doesn't clear them? The server has Sol8 + VxVM5.0. 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. -- Darren Dunham [EMAIL PROTECTED] Senior Technical Consultant TAOS http://www.taos.com/ Got some Dr Pepper?
