Manual Configuration

In the Solaris 10 OS, fabric-connected devices are made available to the Solaris host. This differs from previous versions of the Sun StorageTek Traffic Manager software running on the Solaris 8 or the Solaris 9 OS. In those versions, manual configuration steps were required to achieve fabric-connected device availability.

If you want to manually configure the fabric-connected devices, use the following steps to change the default behavior on the Solaris 10 host.

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.
