Maintenance Commands rem_drv(1M)
rem_drv - remove a device driver from the system
rem_drv [ -b basedir ] device_driver
The rem_drv command informs the system that the device
driver device_driver is no longer valid. If possible,
rem_drv unloads device_driver from memory. Entries for the
device in the /devices namespace are removed. rem_drv also
updates the system driver configuration files.
If rem_drv has been executed, the next time the system is
rebooted it will automatically perform a reconfiguration
boot (see kernel(1M)).
Sets the path to the root directory of the diskless
client. Used on the server to execute rem_drv for a
client. The client machine must be rebooted to unload
Example 1: Examples of rem_drv.
The following example removes the sd driver from use:
example% rem_drv sd
The next example removes the driver from the sun1 diskless
client. The driver will not be uninstalled nor unloaded
until the client machine is rebooted.
example% rem_drv -b /export/root/sun1 sd
