Is there a software like device-mapper I can install on OpenIndiana to get fancy disk symlinks?


Is there a software for OpenIndiana to generate convenient symlinks like /dev/disk/by-id /dev/disk/by-path /dev/disk/by-uuid /dev/disk/by-label and such?

Thumbs up

You can search with-in most package managers too but the results aren't always as easy, like searching on the internet.

I dig this link for that: http://www.sc.edu/beaufort/library/p...es/bones.shtml

In Solaris it is devfsadm
To only create disk links
Code:
devfsadm -c disk
To also remove dangling disk links
Code:
devfsadm -C -c disk
