Based on your information this is what i could gather:
"devfsadm is load the driver into kernel online (without rebooting) for the already installed and seen device by solaris.
For e.g. devfsadm -C tape
tape is a class that defines a device file and the major:minor associated with it.
In Linux it's insmod
Hope it helps! "I am a Newbie sorry if i couldnt"
