NAME
       devices,  devid_cache,  snapshot_cache, vhci_cache -  device configura-
       tion information

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/devices

       /etc/devices/devid_cache

DESCRIPTION
       The directory /etc/devices is  a  repository  of  device-related  data.
       Files  in  this  directory are used to preserve this information across
       reboots and are created and updated as necessary by the system.

       There are no administrative actions necessary with respect to files  in
       /etc/devices.  Should  the  contents  of  a file become corrupted or an
       update fail, the file can simply be removed. The system re-creates  the
       file as necessary.
