hpux 11.23 tape dsf

Hi I have a question about the tape dsf. (hpux 11.23, rx7620)

Here is the output of ioscan. Why the tape instance 6 and 7 have no legacy dsf names like (/dev/rmt/50mn)... I have used the insf -e -H 1/0/6/1/0.1.22.255.1.9.0, but there is no change...... Is there any way to fix it? thanks!

Re: hpux 11.23 tape dsf

Use rmsf to delete the device files using the hardware path.
Then use insf -e  -H 1/0/6/1/0.1.22.255.1.9.0 to recreate the device files. 
If the legacy files are still missing, use insf -L to recreate all the legacy files.
