Resolving Physical Device Name Dependency?

» close window

The Question is:

Why does the SCSI controller on my PW500au show up as PKC0: and my SCSI drive
 show up as DKC0:?  There is only the built in Qlogic controller which it seems
 should show up as PKA0:  How can I change this?  My software is expecting DKA0
 not DKC0.

The Answer is :

  Use a logical name to remap the expected device to the available
  device, or (far better) change the software to use a logical name.
  Dependencies on physical device names are not portable.
