SATA controller and port multiplier device ports are represented by attachment points in the device tree. SATA devices that are connected and configured on the system are shown as attachment point name extension. The terms attachment point and SATA port can be used interchangeably.
You can display SATA device information as follows:
% cfgadm -al Ap_Id Type Receptacle Occupant Condition sata0/0::dsk/c7t0d0 disk connected configured ok sata0/1::dsk/c7t1d0 disk connected configured ok sata0/2::dsk/c7t2d0 disk connected configured ok sata0/3::dsk/c7t3d0 disk connected configured ok . . .
In general, SATA devices must be unconfigured before they can be removed and replaced. If you attempt to unconfigure a device that is part of an active ZFS storage pool, you will see an error message similar to the following:
# cfgadm -c unconfigure sata5/7 Unconfigure the device at: /devices/pci@2,0/pci1022... This operation will suspend activity on the SATA device Continue (yes/no)? y cfgadm: Hardware specific failure: Failed to unconfig device at ap_id: /devices/pci@2,0/pci10...
# cfgadm -al | grep c7t0d0 sata0/0::dsk/c7t0d0 disk connected configured ok
# cfgadm -c unconfigure sata0/0
If you attempt to unconfigure the device by specifying the individual device, you will see a message similar to the following:
# cfgadm -c unconfigure sata0/0::dsk/c7t0d0 do_control_ioctl: open failed: errno:2 cfgadm: Library error: Cannot open ap_id: /devices/pci@0,0/pci10... No such file or directory
# cfgadm | grep sata0/0 sata0/0 disk connected unconfigured ok
# cfgadm -c configure sata0/0
# cfgadm | grep sata0/0 sata0/0::dsk/c7t0d0 disk connected configured ok
