iscsi reload not present with RHEL 5


Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1 (Tikanga)

iscsi-initiator-utils-6.2.0.865-0.8.el5

We have "/etc/init.d/iscsi reload" with RHEL 3 servers while the same is absent for RHEL which is preventing us to scan the new LUNS online

Any one know of any fix or work around??

Re: iscsi reload not present with RHEL 5

To scan luns on line this usually works for us:

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

Where X is HBA number.

You may also have to issue a lip:

echo 1 > /sys/class/fc_host/hostX/issue_lip

"iscsiadm -m session --rescan" did the magic

Last time I've used this one, provided from James - http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.2/html/Online_Storage_Reconfiguration_Guide/scanning_for_new_devices.html

and it working perfect.
