Using the rendev command is it possible to change the name of a device such as a hdisk or an ent adapter. The new desired name must NOT exist in the system. If you are renaming an active device beware that the rendev command will uncofigure the device using rmdev -dl before the name will be changed. Also if you are renaming a ent adapter make sure you are not connected to the system using the ent adapter you are attempting to rename. After a name change on a ent adapter it might be nacessary to run cfgmgr.
