    Viewing newly added disks without reboot


    Hi,

    I would like to know if there is a command to check for a newly added disk without rebboting the server. From what I have seen the fdisk command only shows ones which have already been formatted and partitioned.

    To see the "block" device list (which include: hard drives, flash drives, thumb drives, etc)
    Code:
    blockdev --report
    It even includes the partitions as well.
