Re: How to refresh the device files

Hi Ahmed

there are several options:
1) reboot
2) reload driver module
3) rescan bus

$ cat /sys/class/scsi_host/host?/proc_name
megaraid
lpfc

If your tapes are connected e.g. via fibre (here lpfc) you may initiate a resacan by

echo "- - - " > /sys/class/scsi_host/hostX/scan
