scanning for scsi devices in CentOS 6




Recently I ran into a situation where passing the “- – -” values to iscsi_host/host#/scan didn’t work for me. I was sure that I had run this before on CentOS6, but to no avail I could not find a value in the /host portion.


So, this what I discovered! The friendly folks at Red Hat have created a script for dealing with this.


Do this:


1. yum install sg3_utils
2. run (they added it to the path 😉 booyah!)


Now you should have your drive all discovered and ready for fdisk!
