Solaris Cluster 3.2 and later, Change/Renaming Global "DID" Device Name (Doc ID 1009730.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 13, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to OSC 4.3 [Release 3.0 to 4.3]
Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition - Version 3.1x to OSC 4.3 [Release 3.1 to 4.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Goal

In Sun Cluster 3.0 and 3.1 releases it was only possible to change "DID" (device id) manually as it was automatically generated.
In Solaris Cluster 3.2 and above it is still generated automatically however now there is an easy way to change it.
