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...
