Deconfiguring Medium Changer devices

Note: In the following examples, replace the letter n with the appropriate number for the chosen device.
Deconfigure the medium changer device by using one of the following procedures:
  1. The first method leaves the device that is defined in the configuration database. It is similar to bringing the device offline.
    Enter the following command to bring the /dev/smcn medium changer device offline, but leave it defined in the device database.
    rmdev -l smcn
  2. The second method brings the medium changer device offline and removes its definition from the device database.
    Enter the following command.
    rmdev -l smcn -d

    The device driver is not unloaded from the kernel until the last device is deconfigured.
