I am going to sales pitch for devfsadm.  From the man page:

     devfsadm(1M) maintains the /dev and /devices namespaces.  It
     replaces  the  previous  suite of devfs administration tools
     including drvconfig(1M),  disks(1M),  tapes(1M),  ports(1M),
     audlinks(1M), and devlinks(1M).

    (Those progs are just links to devfsadm now.)

devfsadm has the advantages of:
  *can be used to clean up "dangling" links for non-existant
   hardware if you take something out of the box (or offline it)
  *can be used it in "test" mode to see what it would add
   if you ran it for real (in case you re-arranged your SCSI
  *can use it on a chrooted set up to get the appropriate
   devices on a mounted root file system for duplication,
   flar, etc.

And it works, unlike the previous set of commands where
you pretty much *had* to reboot -r to get everything "noted"
by the system.
