Detecting new virtual disk

I’m running SLES 11 SP1 on VMware.

I’ve added a new disk because I needed the extra space.

I cannot figure out how to get the system to recognize the new disk space.

‘hwinfo’ does not do it.

‘fdisk -l’ does not show it.

The only way I’ve succeeded in the past is by rebooting the server and having it detected during the boot. I’d rather not have to reboot this server. Is there a command I can run to have it discover the newly available device?

Thank you


I am sorry to say, but you are at the wrong forums. These Forums are about openSUSE.
You will find the SLES/SLED forums at The same username and password as here should work there.
