I used  persistent names at my Redhat box and 7.6.3 with NMC. You can
made jukebox and tape-devices very easily with persistent names. It's
that simple and quickly at when my RedHat lost devices and i must
recreate them i used NMC for it. Persistent names are mandatory for
Linux or you lost devices at every boot.
