The vxdisk scandisks command rescans the devices in the OS device tree and triggers a DMP reconfiguration. You can specify parameters to vxdisk scandisks to implement partial device discovery. For example, this command makes DMP discover newly added devices that were unknown to it earlier:
# vxdisk scandisks new
# vxdisk scandisks fabric
The following command scans for the devices hdisk10 and hdisk11:
# vxdisk scandisks device=hdisk10,hdisk11
Alternatively, you can specify a ! prefix character to indicate that you want to scan for all devices except those that are listed.
# vxdisk scandisks \!device=hdisk10,hdisk11
You can also scan for devices that are connected (or not connected) to a list of logical or physical controllers. For example, this command discovers and configures all devices except those that are connected to the specified logical controllers:
# vxdisk scandisks \!ctlr=scsi1,scsi2
The next command discovers devices that are connected to the specified physical controller:
# vxdisk scandisks pctlr=10-60
The items in a list of physical controllers are separated by + characters.
You can use the command vxdmpadm getctlr all to obtain a list of physical controllers.
You should specify only one selection argument to the vxdisk scandisks command. Specifying multiple options results in an error.
