Partprobe will probably do what you want. Partprobe rescans partition tables. --rescan just rescans the targets for new LUNs.
Are you sharing filesystems? If you are you should probably look Clustered LVM+GFS. I use clustered LVM to provision logical volumes for Xen guests on shared iSCSI luns, and it works just fine... cc 2009/7/24 Gonçalo Borges <borges.gonc...@gmail.com>: > > Hi All... > > Here goes a very simple question... > > I have 12 clients, each one with several active iscsi sessions in > different targets. > > In one of those clients, I have made a new partition in a given > device.
