Re: Adding a scsi device with hwmgr command

After physically connecting the device (assuming it supports hot-swapping), execute:

# hwmgr -scan scsi

This should detect the new device and get all the necessary /dev special files set up for you. After a short delay try:

# hwmgr -view device

and your new device should be visible.

Have a look into the admin guide, it will describe in detail hardware management.
