I recently installed Debian 6 in a VM on ESXi 4.1, but I noticed there is no
/proc/scsi/scsi. Am I missing a module which provides that, or is there a different way of doing things like
echo "scsi add-single-device 0 0 1 0">/proc/scsi/scsi?
On recent kernels the
/proc/scsi is being "migrated" to sysfs. You can recompile the kernel and enable the
CONFIG_SCSI_PROC_FS: legacy /proc/scsi/ support to the scsi subsystem, or see if something under
/sys/class/scsi_host and other sysfs dirs have what you need.
The legacy support is a good route if you have many tools that rely on /proc/scsi to work.
The new way of adding scsi devices is.
echo "$c $t $l" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host$h/scan
$h is the HBA number, $c is the channel on the HBA, $t is the SCSI target ID, and $l is the LUN.
If you don't know all of that, you can use wildcards.
echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host$h/scan
