Re: Device name change...

I think that you cant. You can rename disk devices, tape devices, etc, (Mostly, fc or scsi devices showed by hwmgr v d) but you cannot do that for network cards.

Re: Device name change...

Yes, you can change that name. Here's an example:

stocli3# hwmgr -show name

HWID: NAME HOSTNAME PERSIST TYPE PERSIST AT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
...
344: mchan1 stocli3 CONTROLLER pci1 slot 2
n/a: mchan0 stocli3 CONTROLLER pci1 slot 5
...

stocli3# hwmgr -remove name -entry mchan0
stocli3# hwmgr -remove name -entry mchan1
stocli3# hwmgr -add name -component_name mchan -component_num 0 -component_typ CONTROLLER -parent_name pci -parent_num 1 -slot 2
stocli3# hwmgr -show name

HWID: NAME HOSTNAME PERSIST TYPE PERSIST AT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Re: Device name change...

Thanks for your answer.
But I know this way.
hwmgr name can deleted, But hwmgr component can't deleted.

HWID : 47 is orignal (deleted, But recreate after reboot)
HWID : n/a is new (hwmgr -add command).

# hwmgr -show name

HWID: NAME HOSTNAME PERSIST TYPE PERSIST AT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
33: ata0 opcwp22 BUS pci0 slot 13
47: fta0 opcwp22 CONTROLLER pci0 slot 14
n/a: fta1 opcwp22 CONTROLLER pci0 slot 14


#hwmgr -show com
HWID: HOSTNAME FLAGS SERVICE COMPONENT NAME
-----------------------------------------------
44: opcwp22 r---- none pci0slot14
47: opcwp22 r---- none fta0


# ifconfig -a
fta0: flags=8c22

lo0: flags=100c89
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000 ipmtu 4096

sl0: flags=10

tu0: flags=c63

tu1: flags=c63
inet 192.168.2.101 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.2.255 ipmtu 1500

#

I think that problem is follow error.
Component is never deleted.
# hwmgr -delete com -id 47
hwmgr: Error (95) Cannot start operation.

Re: Device name change...

The "hwmgr: Error (95) Cannot start operation." message typically means that there is some pending operation on it. This could be one of the failing hwmgr commands that you gave before.

The commands I gave should work just fine. I just verified it with a network device. And it worked fine. Here's the log:

octo1# ifconfig -a
ee0: flags=c63

ee1: flags=1000c63
inet 10.1.0.1 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 10.1.0.255 ipmtu 1500

ics0: flags=1100063
inet 10.0.0.1 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 10.0.0.255 ipmtu 7000

lo0: flags=100c89
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000 ipmtu 4096

sl0: flags=10

tu0: flags=c63
inet 172.16.30.151 netmask ffff0000 broadcast 172.16.255.255 ipmtu 1500

tu1: flags=c63

tun0: flags=80

tun1: flags=80

octo1# hwmgr -show name
