Add disk in an AIX machine

few useful commandes :

  • lsdev : allows you to list the hardware in your machine AIX knows about. For example
    lsdev -C | grep scsi

    will list all the SCSI interfaces of your machine

  • cfgmgr : lets you change the hardware settings. For example
    cfgmgr -l scsi0

    will rescan the scsi0 bus to find and configure any newly attached SCSI peripheral.
