How to Create Tape Device Links

  1. Become an administrator.
  2. Create the entries in /etc/ as described in Creating Tape Links.

    If devfsadm has previously discovered the devices, you must determine the device address by running the ls -l command on the existing link.

    Note - Be sure to assign /dev/rmt/ N numbers to avoid conflicts with any automatically configured devices, as described above.
  3. Remove existing links from /dev/rmt by running the rm /dev/rmt/* command.
  4. Run devfsadm.

    This command creates new links as per the entries in /etc/ in addition to automatically creating links for any unspecified devices.
