rescan SCSI without rebooting

Hello Everyone,

I have installed an old HP Scanner on my Fedora 11 system, and it works great. The scanner is connected through a SCSI, and it gets recognized at boot time if the scanner is ON. However, if the scanner is OFF, I need to turn ON the scanner and reboot the workstation for the SCSI devise to be recognized. Is there a way that I can rescan the SCSI devise without rebooting? If so, what is the procedure?

Thanks in advance
