Creating HP-UX persistent DSFs
By default, new installations of HP-UX 11i v3 and later create both persistent DSFs and legacy device files for the eschgr and estape drivers. However, you can reinstall or create the persistent DSFs.
First connect the devices to the system. Then, create persistent DSFs on every server on which you want to use the new persistent DSFs.
To create the persistent DSFs automatically
- Depending on the driver, enter the following command as root:
For the eschgr autochanger driver, enter insf - d eschgr.
For the estape tape driver, enter insf - d estape.
For the IBM atdd tape driver, enter insf - d atdd
To refresh the device path for all devices that use a driver, adding the - e option to the command line.
For more information about using the HP-UX insf command, see the man page.
