Changes made to global device permissions are not automatically propagated to all the nodes in the cluster for Solaris Volume Manager and disk devices. If you want to change permissions on global devices, you must manually change the permissions on all the nodes in the cluster. For example, if you want to change permissions on global device /dev/global/dsk/d3s0 to 644, you must issue the following command on all nodes in the cluster:
# chmod 644 /dev/global/dsk/d3s0
VxVM does not support the chmod command. To change global device permissions in VxVM, consult the VxVM administrator's guide.
