unable to see my new disks

i have an ibm server running aix 5.2 with 2 fc cards connected to SAN (hsg80 in multibus failover)acs 8.7.3
i have added a raid storage unit to the SAN, builted my raid, and presented this unit to my ibm server. up to now every thing is ok.
typed at the server console : cfgmgr -v, the system does not discover anything.
when i entered the command : lsdev -Cc disk
the system is only displaying the old physical units (hdisk0,hdisk1,....hdisk6).
i don't know if i am missing something or what is the next step to be able to display the new raid i added ? i even restarted the server, still same thing. I am new to san with aix.
Please Help.
Thank you.

Did you create an appropriate zoning?
You can check if the fibre connection is OK if you can see the wwid of the fc cards at the switch level.

Re: unable to see my new disks

restarted the hsg80 and i now i could see the disk as hdisk6, created a new volume group, created the logical volume and affected it to the volume group. Everything seems to work fine.
Thanx again.
