|Oracle Solaris Administration: SAN Configuration and Multipathing Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
To simplify management of servers in SAN-based data-centers, Oracle's StorageTek SAN Foundation software stack in the Solaris OS dynamically detects devices in a SAN and builds associated /dev tree entries without requiring you to edit configuration files.
In most cases, this process greatly simplifies SAN management. However, for tape devices, you might like the ability to explicitly specify how that /dev entries are created and to ensure the /dev entries are identical across multiple servers on a SAN. This chapter describes how you can specify this tape binding in the Solaris OS while retaining the benefits of automatic discovery for disk-based devices.
