Why Am I Getting An Error When Trying to Use update_drv -f ?
Last updated on JULY 29, 2016
Applies to:Solaris Operating System
# update_drv -f sd
devfsadm: driver failed to attach: sd
Warning: Driver (sd) successfully added to system but failed to attach
# update_drv -f ssd
Cannot unload module: ssd
Will be unloaded upon reboot.
Forcing update of ssd.conf
According to the manpage the update_drv command is used to inform the system about attribute changes to an installed device driver. By default, the system rereads the driver.conf(4) file and reloads the driver binary module. The -f option will force the system to reread the driver.conf file even if the driver module cannot be unloaded. How can we tell if it is busy before running the update_drv command?
