Persistent ownership of raw disk during reboots

Hi,

I'm in process of creating oracle RAC using Solaris 10 in VirtualBox. I want to know how can I change the ownership of device e.g /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s0 and keep it persistent during rebbots.
When I enter

Code:
chown grid:install /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s0

ls -l still shows root:root.

Thanks

/dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s0 is a symbolic link to device special file under /devices. To change ownership of that device run:
Code:
chown -L grid:install /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s0

Actually chown -P worked. -L was failing and I was getting the command usage help. Thanks for your help.
