How to Manually Configure a FC Device

  1. Become superuser.
  2. Enable manual configuration by making sure that the following line in the/kernel/drv/fp.conf file is uncommented.

    Refer to the fp(7D) man page and the cfgadm_fp(1M) man page for further information on this setting.

  3. Reboot the system.
  4. For each fabric-connected device to be made available, select one of the following tasks, depending on whether you are using the Solaris I/O multipathing features.

    If the original default behavior for fabric-connected devices is desired, see the next step.

  5. Disable manual configuration by making sure that the following line in the /kernel/drv/fp.conf file is commented:
    # manual_configuration_only=1;

    For more information about this setting, see cfgadm_fp(1M) and fp(7d).

  6. Reboot the system.
