Install 4mm Tape Drive

We connected a 4mm tape drive to our workstation; however, customer didn't want to take the system down to reconfigure (boot -r) the device. We performed the following actions.

For Solaris 8 or higher, you can use the following command:

#devfsadmin (automatically finds device)

Else use legacy style:

#drvconfig -i st (in this case, specifies scsi type, i.e. tape drive )
tapes (command to create /dev links)
