A device’s definition remains until it is removed using the rmdev command. Some device attributes (such as physical volume identifier, SCSI ID, or Target ID) are unique to a device and remain until the device is removed using the rmdev command. A device definition remains in the ODM when an attribute (for example, the WWN) changes. The definitions in the ODM are persistent and remain until a system administrator removes them.
