No exactly

with luxadm you can see hba if they are online or not, force a restart of that hba

a cfgadm depends of the option you can see the channel and if there is something attached to that channel, rescan that channel to discover new luns

I will say that luxadm and cfgadm are complement of each other.

Thank you very much.  Both are giving same information? From my understanding, we can manage internal  FC disk using  luxadm. Am I right?
luxadm and cfgadm doesn't give the same information, both are main commands  for FC disk management

luxadm : manage the HBA ( FC )
cfgadm: provides configuration administration operations on dynamically reconfigurable hardware resources
