Unhappy how to get detect the scsi device without restarting?


hi all
i am attaching a LTO-3 tape drivce into my RHEL5 linux machine. Every time i used to restart my machine to detect the tape drive is there any way to rescan the buses to detect the newly attached scsi devices. In solaris "devfsadm" and "iostat" is there. I need the same kind of thing in linux. Can anyone help me?

Based on your information this is what i could gather:

http://www.circlemud.org/~jelson/sof...ocs/node3.html

"devfsadm is load the driver into kernel online (without rebooting) for the already installed and seen device by solaris.
For e.g. devfsadm -C tape
tape is a class that defines a device file and the major:minor associated with it.

In Linux it's insmod"

Hope it helps! "I am a Newbie sorry if i couldnt"

RHEL 5 has the driver to access it. i guess. If it doesnt have the driver it would not detect and make it online when a reboot has done. isnt it? I just want to scan it...that is what i am looking for?
