Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Guide

Hot-Plugging

If a PC Card modem or serial device is unplugged while in use, the device driver returns errors until the card is replaced in the socket.

The device must be closed and reopened with the card reinserted before the device begins working again. The restart process depends on the application. For example, a tip session automatically exits when a card in use is unplugged. To restart the system, you must restart the tip session.
