Chapter 6

Dynamically Configuring Devices (Tasks)

This chapter provides instructions for dynamically configuring devices in the Solaris OS. You can add, remove, or replace devices in the Solaris OS while the system is still running, if the system components support hot-plugging. If the system components do not support hot-plugging, you can reboot the system to reconfigure the devices.

For information on the procedures associated with dynamically configuring devices, see the following:

For information on hot-plugging USB devices with the cfgadm command, see Hot-Plugging USB Devices With the cfgadm Command.

For information on hot-plugging InfiniBand devices with cfgadm command, see Chapter 9, Using InfiniBand Devices (Overview/Tasks).

For information about accessing devices, see Accessing Devices.
