Question: How do i Detect new SCSI Disk on an Ubuntu VM without rebooting?


The package scsitools provides the script, which does exacly what we need. Install it and run it:

apt-get install scsitools

This should detect the newly added hard disk and make it available in /dev/ –/dev/sdb in the case you are adding a new drive for the first time. The output of fdisk -l should include the newly detected disk.
