Hot adding Qlogic LUNs – the new method

Friday, August 8th, 2008

I have demonstrated how to hot-add LUNs to a Linux system with Qlogic HBA. This has become irrelevant with the newer method, available for RHEL4 Update 3 and above.

The new method is as follow:

echo 1 > /sys/class/fc_host/host<ID>/issue_lip
echo “—” > /sys/class/scsi_host/host<ID>/scan

Replace “<ID>” with your relevant HBA ID.

Notice – due to the blog formatting, the 2nd line might appear incorrect – these are three dashes, and not some Unicode specialy formatted dash.
