    Replace a disk, remove disk-path entry from cfgadm list

    954225
      I want to remove an entry from the cfgadm list.

      Brief history:
      ###############################
      I am using a Netra Sparc T4-1.
      We are trying to create a procedure to replace the root disk with the machine running.
      Removed the old disk *5000cca012c9aa14* and replaced it with a new disk *5000cca012c99be*.
      But the old disk is still getting listed in "cfgadm", "echo | format" and "diskinfo -a" outputs.
      In diskinfo -a output, the New disk is not getting listed but the Old disk is.
      In the "echo|format" output both the disks are getting listed; but the old disk does not have the path but has <DISK NOT FOUND> message.
      cfgadm output is printed below (old disk is in unconfigured state).


      # cfgadm -al | grep disk
      c1::dsk/c1t50080E52499E6000d3 disk connected configured unknown
      c1::w50080e52499e6000,0 disk-path connected configured unknown

      I wish to see the new disk getting listed in all the above outputs.
