recreate /dev/sg/* on solaris 10 without reboot
We have added 6 new tape drives to our Solaris 10 Media servers. After running "devfsadm -C -c tape" I can see the new drives in the OS. That is, the /dev/rmt/* paths have been created & I can issue mt commands to query the drives.
I just need to get NetBackup to see the drives without rebooting.
Can I run the sg.build & sg.install scripts without rebooting?
I assume that I can considering the OS sees the drives?
My problem is that I am only allowed to reboot these servers twice a year.
I have read your excellent TECH31047 but it specifies a reboot.
