Fc Card device file Issue

Fc Card device file Issue

Hi,

I have one superdome partition, running 11.11i, for some reason i have removed one of the Fc cards, device file , using #rmsf /dev/td3. but after that if i run ioscan again and then insf , the device file is not getting generated.
I have tried this many times on test machine also. the only thing you can do is reboot the system and then device file automaticaly gets created.

Can anyone focus on this, to my understanding running insf over ioscan should generate device special files. but the same is not happening here.

Analysis appriciated..

Thanks

Sandeep

Shalom,

remove the device file. Recommending rmsf

insf -e

Check logs for problems and file attributes after this procedure.

Consider a reboot if possible.

Re: Fc Card device file Issue

Hi Sandeep,

Do you experience this issue only with FC device files or with all device files on the server?

Have you tried insf mentioning the hardware path also?

#insf -eH
or
#insf -eC fc

Don't fix what ain't broke

Hi,

Yes i have tried all insf flags,

but it gets resolved after reboot. which is not the real solution.

Re: Fc Card device file Issue

Fibre channel card device files are a special case and don't get created by insf.

You can get them created by just running the corerct FC startup script. In your case:

/sbin/init.d/fc_td start
