    Detect New Storage Disk in Red Hat


    Wanted to know if there is a way to detect new drive on RHEL 5 server without having to reboot the system.
    Found some info on Red Hat site which asks to Add some parameters like LUN, HBA numbers, Channel on HBA and SCSI Target ID to detect the storage.

    But am not sure how to get this info since I cannot really right now reach or see the device.

    Any suggestions

    Starting with rhes 5.4, the sg3_utils package has a script to rescan the scsi bus

    Hi Thanks, but unfortunately it is a Physical Server.
    I have tried this one before for virtual and it works.. THanks for the reply.
