 HP symbolic links to raw devices

Our hp unix admin says creating a symbolic link to a raw device causes a
panic in the hp os.
How can i get around this so that i have symbolic links instead of
direct addressing for
the character devices ...

Hi,

I think you should consult HP. This behavior is not normal.

Greetings,

This sure doesn't happen in my HP-UX 10.20.

Something is wrong w/ your OS or your admin.

You want to point the sym link at the character-special file (the one
with "c" as the first char in an ls -l).  NOT the one that begins w/ a
"b".
