SF V880 fcal disk replacement - remove old disk references in iostat

I have replaced a failed disk in a SF V880 using luxadm cmds.  The new disk is fine but iostat -En still shows references to the old disk (WWN and SN).  How can I remove these references without rebooting the server.  Rebooting the server will resolve the issue but are there any Solaris commands that will work i.e. devfsadm -C etc?

Extract:

**FAILED DISK**
ssd13           Soft Errors: 84 Hard Errors: 1704 Transport Errors: 1
Vendor: FUJITSU  Product: MAW3147FCSUN146G Revision: 1303 Serial No: xxxxxxxxxxx
Size: 146.80GB <146800115712 bytes>

**REPLACED DISK**
c1t4d0          Soft Errors: 0 Hard Errors: 1 Transport Errors: 0
Vendor: SEAGATE  Product: ST314670FSUN146G Revision: 0354 Serial No: yyyyyyyyyyyy
Size: 146.80GB <146800115712 bytes>
Media Error: 0 Device Not Ready: 0 No Device: 1 Recoverable: 0 Illegal Request: 0 Predictive Failure Analysis: 0

Both entries in iostat - it should only show the REPLACED DISK info.

Hi, thanks for the response - the problem I have is not to do with cfgadm.  The disk is internal to a SF V880 and has been removed/replaced using luxadm (remove_device, insert_device) correctly.  However when I run iostat -En it still shows the old failed disk references in terms of ssid12 and serial number (see original post).  The question is to remove the references tfor the old failed disk from iostat through Solaris without rebooting the server - the references will be removed once the server has been rebooted.

Hi,

The SFV880 is currently running Solaris 9 & I believe it has been patched to the latest release
