Solaris 2.6 + VxVM 3.2
I'm looking for a safe method to clean up old references in the Solaris
devices tree (/dev, /devices, /etc/path_to_inst).
I tried to empty /etc/path_to_inst, then "init 0 + boot -ar", to force
Solaris to rebuild the set, but VxVM complains not beeing able to access the
rootvol, although I thought it would be transparent for VxVM even if the
rootdisk reference /dev/dsk/cxtydz changes after this process.
Though this is not essential, I'm fed up with old nodes in /dev, /devices
and /etc/path_to_inst for devices which have been removed for years (I guess
useless devices scans could slow down the boot).
Please give advice.
