Question HD SCSI Rescan

Hi all

I have a little Problem. I have add a disk to my Server (Dell PE1850, SCSI RAID PERC4) and configure the disk as a single disk(no array). I have make this by the working OS. But know I dont see the disk for example with fdisk -l. I think I must rescan the SCSI Bus. The simplest way ist to reboot the Server but is a productive Machine and because that is this very bad solution.

I`v found that tread thread id=215883 (Sorry can`t post the full url)

And test the command below:
echo "rescan" > /proc/scsi/megaraid/0
But this command hangs Knows anyone how to scan my scsi bus to detect the new drive?
