Manually Configuring FC Devices

In the Oracle Solaris release, fabric-connected devices are available automatically to the Oracle Solaris system.

If you want to manually configure the fabric-connected devices, use the following steps to change the default behavior.

Note - Changing the default behavior makes all of your fabric-connected devices unavailable, which can cause problems for fabric-connected devices that are required to be available at boot time.
