[SunHELP] moving a disk

The only concern I would have is this:
    a)  The system does not have hot-pluggable disk bays.  If this is the case, you could damage a drive by removing and inserting while the system is powered
I would schedule downtime for the server so that you can perform this task ensuring zero damage.
Devfsadm is a good tool to complete tasks while the system is running, Solaris 9 and above has a daemon running constantly so you should not have to run devfsadm manually.  So the hard drive links will be created automatically.  
The only downfall is that you will have an entry in the /dev/dsk that will be incorrect due to the relocation.

	Would i run into a problem if i moved a disk from one slot to another (then
	ran devfsadm).  There are no mounts on the disks.
	    I installed teh disk on Friday, but i realize now that i want the disk
	on the other controller.
