Rename cdrom and floppy

Hi,

I have 3 members in Tru64 Unix V5.1B. After deleting memember 3 (Hardware Pb), and add the same member (3), I want to rename my CD an Floppy on "member 2". When I try to rename
cdrom4 on cdrom3 or floppy4 on floppy3:

# dsfmgr -m cdrom4 cdrom3
# dsfmgr -m floppy4 floppy 3

I have the folowing message: second device is busy ! I have deleted specials files for cdrom3 and floppy3 and I have the same message !

So I have an other idea:

I try to delete cdrom4 and floppy4 and after a new boot, this device has reconstructed on cdrom3 an floppy3.
But when I try to delete it, I have an error message.
# hwmgr -delete scsi -did xxx (cdrom ID)

Error message: HWMGR_REQ buffer contains bad parameters or size are invalid.

Could you help me ?

Thanks in advance,
dominque

Did you try
# dsfmgr -e cdrom4 cdrom3
# dsfmgr -e floppy4 floppy 3

Yes I have done this. but now, I have the folowing message at reboot:

dsfmgr: Error: ProcessStatusDatun
(ADD_ENTRY_LOCAL, /dev/rdisk/cdrom3b) = 17: file existe

and the same message for cdrom3a,3c,3d,3e,3f
and the same message for floppy3a,3c,3d,3e,3

When I type: #dsfmgr -V -F -v ==> I have the folowing message at end.

Warning floppy4a Kernel basename wrong ls:floppy3 Sb;floppy4

and the same message for floppy3c an 4C

and the same message for cdrom4a, 4b and 4C.

Does it possible to correct the Kernel basename ?

Now, I have 8 error message at each boot.
