    Let’s say the FC path is still up for the primary path but one of the RAID LUNs either disappears or a new RAID LUN is added, does Solaris automatically detect this? It would seem to me that some kind of polling mechanism would be required. While there looks to be something like this “Failback Polling Rate”, I cannot find info on it. If this is not it, then it looks like a manual re-scan of the paths would turn up the missing/added LUN, correct?
