The commands vicfg-rescan.pl (esxcfg-rescan.pl) are used to rescan for storage changes. The vicfg-rescan.pl command is performed after storage operations such as adding a new LUN to your ESXi host. The command will only return an indication of success or failure and no other information. Changes to storage could then queried with the command vicfg-mpath.pl. This command takes the option of <vmkernel_SCSI_adapter_name> (e.g. vmhba1) and is similar to running a storage rescan for new storage devices in the VI client as shown in the first image. The second image shows a sample of the vicfg-rescan.pl command run on vmhba1.
