Sun Cluster System Administration Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Update the Global Device Namespace

When adding a new global device, manually update the global device namespace by running scgdevs(1M).

Note –

The scgdevs command does not have any effect if the node that is running the command is not currently a cluster member. The command also has no effect if the /global/.devices/node@ nodeID file system is not mounted.

  1. Become superuser on any node of the cluster.

  2. Use the scgdevs command to reconfigure the namespace.

    # scgdevs

The following example shows output generated by a successful run of scgdevs.
